Flown Lunar Module rendezvous radar cue card carried on the Apollo 10 mission, 3.25 x 1.75, signed on the reverse in felt tip, “A-10, Gene Cernan.” The card provides a table for converting distance to volts that could be used to determine the distance between the Lunar Module and Command Service Module during rendezvous. In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Cernan, in part: “The accompanying Apollo 10 LM (Lunar Module) Rendezvous Radar Cue Card was flown into low lunar orbit in May 1969 aboard the lunar module ‘Snoopy’ on the second manned mission to the moon…The Rendezvous Radar cue card was a conversion table that gave us the ability to convert distance to volts that could be read from the Abort Guidance Computer and allowed us to gauge our distance from the command/service module during rendezvous and docking maneuvers in lunar orbit…This LM cue card has remained a treasured part of my personal space collection for more than thirty-five years, ever since NASA presented it back to me in 1969…This complete Lunar Module Rendezvous Radar Cue Card remains both a historic tool from one of the manned lunar voyages, a rare example of an astronaut flight-certified artifact returned from the Moon.” Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
