Enormous and exceptional flown Apollo 17 lunar orbit chart, 210 x 13, carried on and extensively used during the crew during lunar orbit, signed and flight-certified on panel D10 by Cernan in blue felt tip, “Flown to the Moon, Apollo XVII, Gene Cernan.” Chart is comprised of 21 map plates depicting the entire lunar surface during revolutions 57 through 75, and is labeled on the first panel, “Lunar Orbit Chart D, Apollo 17 Revs 57–75, December 6, 1972, SKB 32100123-383, S/N 1002, 1st Edition October 18, 1972.” The map contains extensive in-flight writing in ballpoint and pencil by Harrison Schmitt on panels D10 through D14, including the words “Jack’s Map” and observations about the color of the lunar surface. Also bears handwritten camera F-stop notations for use with lunar observation Hasselblad photography. Originates from Cernan’s personal collection and is accompanied by his signed letter of provenance, which states that it is one of four such charts used by the crew during orbit. Serving an essential purpose this is an extremely impressive, mission-used tool of exploration from mankind's last lunar landing mission. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
