Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $722.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Roll of direct negatives of the lunar landscape taken by the metric camera in the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay of the Apollo 16 CSM, in its original canister measuring 5.5″ tall and 6.5″ in diameter. The label on the top reads: “Apollo 16, Mag Metric, Film type: 2422, Part 4 of 5, Frames 2041 to 2760, Date APR 1972, 2nd Gen., Negative, Direct Neg.” In fine condition. This film was directly reproduced from the original negatives taken in space by the Mapping Camera Subsystem, which included the metric camera, the stellar camera, and the laser altimeter, carried in the CSM SIM Bay and retrieved by Ken Mattingly during an EVA prior to reentry. These high-resolution lunar photos were used in improving NASA’s lunar maps.
