I bought these on a whim.

Three have
"Apollo 12
CSM TEC Star Chart
Nov. 14 1969 Launch
Preliminary
September 8, 1969"

Two have
"Apollo 12
CSM TLC Star Chart
Nov. 14 1969 Launch
Preliminary
September 8, 1969"

The difference is TLC vs TEC

TLC charts show a diminishing earth with elapsed flight time. TEC charts show a enlarging earth with elapsed flight time.

Can anyone give me some info on these? I want to mount one TEC and one TLC with the flown Apollo 12 translunar injection flight plan page I recently got from Dick Gordon. All five charts are on plastic mylar type material. Two have all the white edges trimmed off and three have white borders. The white paper chart is on smooth cardstock printed on both sides. Thanks.
