Description


Roll of second-generation negatives of the lunar surface taken by the panoramic camera in the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay of the Apollo 15 CSM, in its original canister measuring 10″ tall and 6.25″ in diameter. The label on the top reads: "Apollo 15, Mag Pan, Film type: 2420/2422, Part 14B of 18, Frames 0028 to 0073, Date 3 Aug 72, 2nd Gen. Direct Neg Rectified." In fine condition, with dents to the canister's rim. This film was directly reproduced from the original negatives taken in space by the 24-inch-focal-length Itek camera carried in the CSM SIM Bay, which were retrieved by Al Worden during an EVA prior to reentry. These high-resolution lunar panoramas were used in improving NASA's lunar maps.
