Description

This data set consists of positive photographs in 70-mm format produced from the original 3400, 3414, SO-267, and 2485 b/w film used with the Hasselblad cameras carried on the Apollo 14 mission. Reproduction was made with quality control and dodging techniques. Areas photographed from orbit include the Descartes region (site of Apollo 16 landing), the Fra Mauro region (site of Apollo 14 landing), the farside craters Pasteur, Tsiolkovsky, and Ansgarius, and the frontside craters Langrenus, Theophilus, Herschel, and Lansberg, which lie between 135 deg E and 30 deg W longitude and + or - 12 deg, except for some oblique views as far as 32 deg north or south. Maria Fecunditatis, Tranquillitatis, and Serenitatis, Vaporum, and Sinus Medii were also photographed from orbit. Surface photography included panoramic views of ALSEP equipment, small craters, boulders, the core tube, the LM, cone crater, a footprint trench, the tracks of the modularized equipment transporter, the astronauts, the earth cresent, and horizon pans.
