What is "not"? Does "it's not" here mean "you don't really begin to appreciate the context"?

****************
It's a pretty amazing image, even if the lander and rover barely fill a couple of pixels. But it's not until you zoom out a little that you really begin to appreciate the context. This next image shows the square of the previous picture on the mare basalt plain (a comparatively small feature on the lunar farside). Suddenly the remoteness, and starkness of the environment becomes more apparent.
