Mapping-Stellar Camera Photography on 70mm Film

NSSDCA ID: ASNO-00002

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1973-05-24 to 1973-09-03

Description

This data set is all the photographs from the stellar camera in the mapping-stellar-laser altimeter combination experiment on the Apollo 17 mission. The photographs consist of stellar fields used to determine spacecraft attitude in relation to selenodetic quantities, and have limited used for other studies. The stellar camera photographic frame numbers differ from mapping camera photographic frame numbers by 18, so that the stellar frame number is 18 less than the corresponding mapping frame number (e.g., mapping camera photograph AS17-2078 corresponds to stellar photograph AS17-2060).
