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: 2422, Part 7A of 41, Frames 1951 to 1988, Date 6 Aug 73, Master, Direct Neg.” The roll features 37 panoramic frames of film, each measuring approximately four feet long by nine inches wide. In fine condition. This film was directly reproduced from the original negatives taken in space by the 24-inch-focal-length optical bar panoramic camera produced by Itek, 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.
