Multispectral Photos

NSSDCA ID: 1969-099A-09

Mission Name: Apollo 12 Command and Service Module (CSM)

The S-158 multispectral experiment camera group consisted of four Hasselblad cameras, side-by-side on a common mount, each fitted with a different filter and type of film. The objective of the experiment was to obtain photographs showing lunar surface color variations for use in geologic mapping and correlation with surface samples from spectral reflectance.
