B/W Logetronic Positive 70-mm Photographs


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

Time span: 1971-07-26 to 1971-08-07


This Logetronic data set consists of master positive black and white 70-mm film of nine magazines (2410 frames). The pictures were produced, with quality control on the density on the original film by exposure control and dodging techniques, 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 on the 70-mm Hasselblad cameras. The contrast in these photographs is better than in the photometric version, but there is a slight reduction in resolution. 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 reproductions from seven magazines of Ektachrome ES and Ektachrome MS color film. The quality of the photography is generally good. The photographs from orbit cover such features as Tsiolkovsky and the surrounding area on the farside, Mare Smythii on the eastern (IAU) limb, Maria Crisium, Serenitatis, and Imbrium, and Oceanus Procellarum. These photographs also cover individual fratures such as Messier, Archimedes, and Aristarchus and the surrounding area, as well as the Hadley Rille, including the LM landing site. Surface photography includes the LM tracks, the Lunar Rover (LRV), Spur, Hadley Delta, Mt. Hadley Mountains, and the Hadley Rille. These areas were in the sunlit portions of the Moon, at that time between 180 deg. E and 70 deg. W, and were restricted to plus or minus 25 deg. by orbital constraints.
