Description


Roll of direct negatives of the lunar landscape taken by the panoramic camera in the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay of the Apollo 17 CSM, in its original canister measuring 10″ tall and 6.25″ in diameter. The label on the top reads: “Apollo 17, Mag, Film type: 2420/2422, Part 15B of 41, Frames 2517 to 2554, Date Aug 73, Master Pos Direct Neg Rect.” In very good to fine condition, with various dents to canister and lid, heaviest to the latter. 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 Ron Evans during an EVA prior to reentry. These high-resolution lunar panoramas were used in improving NASA’s lunar maps.
