Description


Roll of direct negatives of the lunar surface taken by the panoramic camera in the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay of the Apollo 16 CSM, in its original canister measuring 10″ tall and 6.25″ in diameter. The label on the top reads: “Apollo 16, Mag Pan, Film type: 2422, Part 6B of 16, Frames 4555 to 4599, Date Oct 31 1972, Master Pos Direct Neg Rectified.” In fine condition. 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 Ken Mattingly during an EVA prior to reentry. These high-resolution lunar panoramas were used in improving NASA’s lunar maps.
