    LUNAR ORBITER PHOTOGRAPHIC ATLAS OF THE NEAR SIDE OF THE MOON by CHARLES J. BYRNE, and a great selection of related books, . The Lunar Orbiter 1 photographed potential landing sites for the Apollo missions and the site where Surveyor 1 had landed three months earlier. It also provided the first clear images of the lunar far side. (U.S. Air Force illustration, photo courtesy.

    The Orbiter missions were designed to photograph all possible Apollo landing sites, but this goal was accomplished by the third mission, so Orbiter IV was devoted to photographing the entire lunar near side, thus making possible a photographic lunar atlas of unprecedented quality, while Orbiter V photographed selected features of special interest.". THE reference photographic volume about the moon directly from NASA Lunar Orbiters. It's superior to the digital version available at the Lunar and Planetary Institute. This book and I go back a long way to the early s when a couple of "legendary" books were published by George H. Leonard (Somebody Else Is On The Moon) and Fred Steckling Reviews: 2.

      Book: Moon Morphology, z - posted in Lunar Observing: Moon Morphology: Interpretations Based on Lunar Orbiter Photography, Schultz, Peter H., University of Texas Press, (OOP) A thick book with chapters on the various types of lunar feature, classifying them by size, shape, age etc. Each pair of pages has photos on the right, many in . Don Wilhelms's book, To a Rocky Moon, contains a wealth of information about site selection. Data from the first three Lunar Orbiter missions are discussed in pages ; and selection of the Apollo 12 site is discussed in pages A .

The Lunar Orbiter program was a series of five unmanned lunar orbiter missions launched by the United States from through Intended to help select Apollo landing sites by mapping the Moon's surface, they provided the first photographs from lunar orbit and photographed both the Moon and Earth.

All five missions were successful, and 99 percent of the lunar. Lunar Orbiter Photo Gallery Foreword Scanning and Processing Information. The Lunar Orbiter Photo Gallery can be accessed in the following ways.

Data Users' Note NSSDCNASA Goddard Space Flight Center, June About this book Introduction Using 21st century techniques, Charles Byrne - previously System Engineer of the Apollo Program for Lunar Orbiter Photography - has removed almost all the artifacts and imperfections to provide a comprehensive and beautifully detailed set of images of the lunar surface.

The first three missions mapped potential Apollo lunar landing sites. Lunar Orbiter IV photographed most of the near and far sides of the Moon medium- and high- resolutions. Lunar Orbiter V completed the photography of the far side and collected additional images of 36 sites of scientific interest.

The present volume constitutes a photographic atlas of lunar surface features, based on Lunar Orbiter photographs, plus explanatory text. Photographs are grouped in order to illustrate and analyze specific morphological types, and the features are treated as products of an evolving planetary body rather than as data points.

In contrast to previous lunar atlases, craters are. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is a NASA robotic spacecraft currently orbiting the Moon in an eccentric polar mapping orbit. LRO data is essential for planning NASA's future human and robotic missions to the Moon.

Welcome to the Lunatic Fringe. As my fans and critics know, I never set out to prove that extraterrestrial ruins existed on the Moon. All I intended was to make a coffee table book comparing photos I took of the Moon with my 8″ Celestron to NASA’s orbital photography during the Apollo missions.

Lunar Orbiter 5, the last of the Lunar Orbiter series, was designed to take additional Apollo and Surveyor landing site photography and to take broad survey images of unphotographed parts of the Moon's far side. It was also equipped to collect selenodetic, radiation intensity, and micrometeoroid impact data and was used to evaluate the Manned Space Flight Network.

Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this is an excellent history of the historic Lunar Orbiter project in the s leading to America's Apollo moon landing. Lunar Orbiter brought several new departures in U.S. efforts to explore the Moon before landing men there.

Lunar Orbiter 2’s mission was to photograph 13 primary and 17 secondary landings sites for the Apollo program in the northern region of the Moon’s near side .This Lunar Orbiter (LO) mosaic of the Moon was constructed using photographs acquired by LO III, IV and V.

Work towards constructing the global mosaic spanned over seven years. Earlier work involved scanning and processing more t mm film strips from the LO high- and medium-resolution cameras (HR and MR, respectively).
