Does anyone know where I can find a photo of Bruce McCandless sitting at the Capcom console during the Apollo 11 lunar EVA? I prefer a photo during the mission, but I'll settle for a simulation photo.

I don't think I have ever seen a front view of McCandless at the CapCom console, but I have a rear view of him looking at the big screen in Mission Control.

What exactly do you have? Is it a photo or a JPG?

It is a JPEG, which can also be found here. Don't let the caption fool you, the photo was made during the early moments of the EVA.

Thanks for the link. I searched that site, but I didn't find anything. I'm glad your recognized it for what it was.

I got Bruce to sign this image the last time I saw him at the Autographica show in the UK a couple of years ago:

Keep me in mind if you ever decide to sell it.

While not taken during the EVA, this photo of McCandless was taken during the Apollo 11 TLI.
