Abstract:

Includes photography and visual observations by the astronauts. Provides the lunar photography available from Apollo 8 and how the photograph can be obtained. ... "For the first time, good high-illumination photographs were taken from a spacecraft so that areas of different reflectivity could be delineated; in particular, rayed craters and mare areas. Apollo 8 far-side photography also includes the best terminator photography obtained from a spacecraft. Both the high-Sun and low-Sun vertical photographs show good detail of the area directly under the orbital track, and the oblique photographs reveal a mountain range that had not been previously identified."--Page 16.
