I recently obtained a couple of NASA photos on which I'd appreciate your opinions.

First is STS-135 'signed' by all four. I'm 99.9% sure this is the dreaded autopen but would love to be told otherwise!

Second one is a portrait of Chris Ferguson when he was pilot on STS-115. Autopen again?

You are right, Neil: the crew photo is an autopen.

As for the portrait of Ferguson, it is hand signed. Definitely not autopenned.

I hope that you didn't pay too much for the crew photo.

Thanks vidoz. Fortunately, I didn't pay anything for them!
