Description

Beta pouch for important 16mm DAC equipment

Beta cloth pouch to be utilized for storing accessories of the 16mm Maurer Data Acquisition Cameras (DAC), 5 x 9 x 3.5, stenciled on the front with very light red part numbers. The top flap of the pouch identifies the equipment each of the three separate compartments is designed to hold, including the “16 MM Cable,” “16 MM Cam Adap,” and “16 MM Spare Fuses.” In fine condition, with soiling and expected wear. The 16mm Maurer Data Acquisition Camera is best known for the movies it was used to take through the LMP's window during the approach and landing of the Lunar Module. Movie footage taken on the lunar surface was also shot by the Maurer cameras, and they were utilized in various scenarios depending on the mission, including stop motion photography of the Apollo 11 EVA as seen through the LMP’s window and documenting the geology encountered on the Lunar Roving Vehicle during the later missions. A desirable Apollo-related photographic accoutrement. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
