This data set consists of one roll of 35-mm film used for dim-light photography on the Apollo 16 mission. The following objects were photographed: Skylab contamination, zodiacal light, earthshine on the moon, Gum nebula, galactic star clusters, gegenschein/motion point, gegenschein calibration, water droplet in the cabin, and calibration frames. Star images are trailed, as spacecraft motion was not compensated.
