Complete Panoramic Camera Photography on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1971-07-31 to 1971-08-03


This data set consists of one roll of 35-mm b/w film and contains the complete set of more than 1500 usable photographs of the lunar surface taken by the panoramic camera on Apollo 15. Paper prints of the pan camera photography were mounted 4 to a board and then were photographed on 35-mm microfilm so that one 35-mm frame contains 4 pan camera frames. The frame number for each picture appears at the center of the lower margin of the frame. The surface photography is preceded by 3 frames containing a brief description of (1) the pan photography, (2) use as a catalog, (3) technical supporting data, and (4) NSSDC ordering procedures. This microfilm constitutes the NSSDC catalog for the panoramic camera photography.

Digital images (scans) of the entire contents of the microfilm are available as data collection PSPG-00933.
