Mapping Camera Stellar Photography on 70-mm Master Positive Film

NSSDCA ID: ASVI-00004

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

Time span: 1972-04-21 to 1972-04-26

Description

This data set consists of the complete set of the mapping stellar camera photography from JSC. The stellar imagery is generally very good, although some frames contain static marks. Other frames have fog or light leaks. The densities are affected by the light levels under which they were exposed. Star images are those unaffected by atmosphere. Their frame numbers do not correspond to the mapping camera frame numbers, even though they were simultaneously exposed. The user should add 79 to the mapping frame numbers to find the frame number of the star field associated with that mapping frame.
