Description

Original vintage color glossy 10 x 8 red-numbered (AS12-57-8455) NASA photo of a stereo close-up view showing a three-inch square area of the lunar surface.

The camera, which was specially developed to get the highest possible resolution of a small area, was mounted on a walking stick, and the astronauts used it by holding it up against the object to be photographed and pulling the trigger. Reverse of photo bears “A Kodak Paper” watermarks and purple NASA caption text. In fine condition, with a small area of emulsion irregularity.
