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.Originally Posted by David A. Goldfarb
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.
