Description

This data set consists of photography from the 35-mm Nikon camera. The photography contains frames of cabin photos showing onboard experiments being conducted by the astronauts, lunar features from orbit in earthshine (ashen light), lunar volcanic features (sinuous rilles, mare ridges, orange soil, volcanic cones in Serenitatis and Turtleback craters), Reiner-gamma (a solar corona-ilke feature), beyond terminator exposures, star trails or contamination particles, Tsiolkovsky on the far side, zodiacal light, and calibration wedges. Many frames are very underexposed or unexposed. The lunar limb shots are overexposed. A few frames are out of focus.
