Description

This data set, which consists of the complete set of Apollo 16 mapping (metric) camera photography, is recorded on black and white microfiche. The imagery consists of lunar features along the orbital path of the command module, including both nearside and farside features. This data set is intended primarily for use as an index to better quality copies. The frame numbers appear in the upper margin of each photo. The quality of the photographs is generally very good except for occasional dirt specks and scratches, however the frame numbers are occasionally illegible.
