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

Time span: 1971-07-26 to 1971-08-07


This data set consists on one master positive black and white roll of 9 magazines (2410 frames) on 70-mm film. The pictures were produced on a Niagara printer from the original 70-mm 2485, 3400, 3401, and 3414 black and white film and the SO-168, SO-174, and SO-368 color film used with the 70-mm Hasselblad cameras to produce a set of photography suitable for detailed photometric and photogrammetric investigations. These cameras were equipped with lenses with focal lengths of 60, 80, 250, and 500 mm. Of the total 2410 frames, 1010 are black and white reporductions from 7 magazines of the Ektachrome ES and Ektachrome MS color film. The quality of the photography is generally good. The orbital coverage includes the crater Tsiolokovsky and the surrounding area, Maria Smythii, Crisium, Serenitatis, and Imbrium, Oceanus Porcellarum, craters such as Messier, Archimedes, Aristarchus and its nearby companions Herodotus and Schroter's Valley, and the Apennine mountains and Hadley rill, including the LM landing site. Surface photographs show the LRV tracks, rocks, Hadley rill and the mountains spur, Hadley delta, and Hadley.
