Spectacular collection of 165 color 70mm positive transparencies of images taken during the Apollo 11 mission, predominately comprising lunar surface views, interior shots of Aldrin inside the LM, lunar orbit, the spectacular Earthrise, and the LM separation sequence. The images originate from Apollo 11 film canisters 36, 37, and 44. Each transparency is numbered and sandwiched between two thin pieces of optical glass, and sealed in a 4″ x 3.25″ thin aluminum mount. Each slide has its own individual three-digit set of identification number etched into the outer thin edge of the mount. Slides placed in these glass and aluminum large format mounts were usually slated to be projected with the powerful, arc-source slide projector located in the Teague Auditorium at the Manned Spacecraft Center (JSC). The slides are in very good to fine condition, but show the normal discoloration and fading associated with the type of transparency film and chemical development process of that era.
