    Nah, it would be too much trouble to keep cleaning the moon dust off of it.

    I Googled on "Apollo moon photos", almost every site in the list had to do with whether the moon visits were a hoax.
    The internet is so educational :rolleyes:
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    You would be better served with a standard SWC and 500CM than either camera. I would love to have a Mark 70 with 60mm f5.6 Biogon and 100mm 3.5 Planar with Reseau plates. Just think about your strret photos with a nice grid...perfect for squares.

    NASA has most of the images from the missions on a site somewhere in 3MB files that are good to about 8x10. There are 3 companies that are allowed to scan the negatives if you want one of the more obscure images or one of higher resolution.

    We got the picture of Buzz Aldren ("Visor") from one of these companies. They were *very* cool about it, and let us have a high-res version for free. Even after cropping, it was good for a 16x20 image.

    Take a look at the original--major tilt. Even the versions normally shown have some tilt to the horizon.

    I tried to work with an eBay "Live" auction a while back. I couldn't get in to use it. I would go direct to the Westlicht site if I could use that.

    Too bad--a Burke and James 8x10 with lens went for $60! Darn.

    As I recall, the one Apollo mission where they tried this, it failed. They were going to do a detailed lunar map, but the CM pilot couldn't get the camera to work. I forget which mission this was, but it was probably around 14 or 15.

    They didn't consider it worth the fuel to lift the Hassy's off the lunar surface. This LF camera never went down, but it could be that it was left in the LEM to make room lunar rocks or something.

    According to The Linhof Camera Story NASA bought 5 Aerotechnikas, modified them somewhat, and they have been working perfectly since 1983--can't vouch for earlier than that.

    I was incorect. I was thinking of the "Hycon" camera used for Apollo 14. As near as I can tell, it was a modified U2 camera.

    The cameras since 1983 would have been space shuttle toys. Hence, they would return to earth. The Hycon may have burned up with the LM.

    Most of the more famous ones can be found at grin (Great Images in NASA). They have some very high res scans.

    http://grin.hq.nasa.gov/
    http://grin.hq.nasa.gov/subject-space.html

    Johnson space center (jsc) has an archive as well
    http://images.jsc.nasa.gov/

    I think this is the one I remember using the most. The have the 3MB scans of each image.
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/
    with this one for Apollo
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/...llo/index.html

    This site lists the different archives:

    Just an update,

    Both cameras sold for about $34,000. I sure wish I had a $34,000 camera...
