Description

This data set consists of 5- x 48-in. frames of b/w film from the panoramic camera on the Apollo 17 mission. Because of a malfunction, much of the photography is overexposed in the highlight areas. This condition was partly overcome by special development processes. Most of the detail remains. Additional special processing could show the detail and further reduce the highlights, though at the expense of the lowlight areas. The remainder of the photography is generally very good. Many frames contain nothing. These are usually beyond terminator frames in which the light level was below threshold detection.
