Apollo 17 lunar surface high-relief topographical map, 1:12,500 scale, approximately measures 45" x 34", and portrays the dramatic terrain of the Taurus-Littrow valley, the landing site of the Lunar Module Challenger. The map notes the "Approximate Target Point" to near-center, surrounding craters like "Powell," "Shakespeare," "Sherlock," and "Cochise," as well as two of the region's mountains, North and South Massif, the sloping Lincoln Scarf, and Tortilla Flat, a section traversed by the astronauts during their second EVA. Prepared and published for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration by the Defense Mapping Agency Topographic Center, Washington, D.C. Framed in an impressive shadow box to an overall size of 50" x 39". In fine condition, with a few scattered scuffs, creases, and dents; the aesthetic quality of the piece remains strong and highly presentable.
