Description

This data set contains 3 atlases of photographs, obtained from the television experiment, entitled "Ranger VII Photographs of the Moon." "Part I. Camera 'A' Series" (NASA SP-61) contains the 199 photographs taken by the A-camera, the widest angle camera. "Part II. Camera 'B' Series" (NASA SP-62) contains the 200 pictures taken by the B-camera. The resolution was equal to or better than the best photographs of the moon taken with earth-based telescopes. "Part II. Camera 'P' Series" (NASA SP-63) includes 758 of the more than 3900 photographs taken by the 4 partial-scan P-cameras. The atlases include mission and camera system descriptions and tables of values for each picture published. The atlases were reproduced photographically to preserve the image content of the non-retouched records.
