Tremendous Lunar Descent Navigation map No. 6 carried to the moon aboard the lunar module Challenger during the Apollo 17 mission, 10 x 7.5, signed and flight-certified in black felt tip, "The chart used on descent to Taurus Littrow, Gene Cernan, Apollo XVII." Attractively double-matted and framed with two images of the landing site, the mission patch, and an engraved plaque to an overall size of 20.5 x 27.5. The plaque reads, in part: "(Section 6 of 18) This map was used in the descent from orbit for the lunar landing of the last Apollo LM Challenger on December 11, 1972. The landing track is in the center, traveling from bottom to top. This map remained on the moon's surface in the LM for three days, while Jack Schmitt and I explored the valley of Taurus-Littrow." In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Cernan, in part: "This chart was folded into 18 numbered sections (of which this is section #6) and taped together in a continuous loop. Minutes to lunar touchdown are marked on the left side. The entire 18-map assembled chart was manifested as part #SKB 321100123-384, serial number 1002, and stowed aboard the lunar lander before and after use." From the collection of Gene Cernan. An incredible lunar chart and display piece personally signed and certified by the last man to set foot on the moon.
