Thanks for mentioning that. No doubt your impressive efforts to make the Apollo 16 and Skylab UVC images available will be appreciated by many.

Frames 10436 to 10642 were taken on Magazine 80 (W) before the Hycon Lunar Topographic Camera malfunctioned. The photo index includes this description:
This electrically operated camera, which was carried aboard the Command Module, was a modified KA-7A Aerial Reconnaissance Camera, which, when used, was mounted in the crew access hatch window ... For each frame exposed, a small clock showing the day and time was simultaneously exposed to the side of the frame. This photography was intended to support the objective of obtaining high-resolution photography of future landing sites and areas of scientific interest.

What is the photo number of this image from NASA SP-400 "Skylab, Our First Space Station"? The caption says it is a photo of Kerwin taken by Weitz on the final day of the mission.

They did don their suits for the undocking and separation.

Just a guess, but the image seems to match this description for photo SL2-8-689:
View of MDA looking toward axial hatch with crewman in tunnel

I have scanned a 20x24" print of an Apollo 14 Hycon photo, you can see and download the individual frames here.

Now I need someone with Photoshop to stitch the six frames together into one photo.

That is indeed the image number I have assigned to it, although that view was not included in a full set of lo-res Skylab photos I acquired years ago.

(Disclaimer: I and Paul are not from NASA or endorsed by them. We are doing this in our own free time.)

This archive contains 251 photos taken on Apollo 14 by a modified Hycon KA-7A camera. These magazines were designated as AS14-79 and AS14-80.

I would like to thank the NSSDCA for scanning and providing magazine AS14-79 and AS14-80. I would like to thank Paul for processing the NSSDCA .TIFF files.

These photos were acquired by requesting NSSDCA dataset PSPG-00256. A film or digital copy of AS14-79 and AS14-80 was requested. The NSSDCA scanned a film for this request and several months later the resultant digital dataset was provided.

Each file is 23 MB and has a resolution of 6016*4016 pixels.

The NSSDCA provided TIFF files appear to be Nikon D750 raw files, which can only be correctly opened with special software. Paul was kind enough to batch-process all raw files. Each file was put through a DNG converted, Photoshop will then allow it to be imported normally. This caused the images to turn brown, which was corrected by turning them grayscale.

These 70mm film magazines were carried onboard Apollo 13. The single-letter magazines were stowed in the command module. The double-letter magazines were stowed in the lunar module.

What is the letter designation for Magazine 63?

  • L is Mag 60
  • M
  • N is Mag 58
  • O
  • P
  • Q
  • R is Mag 59
  • S
  • T
  • II is Mag 61
  • JJ is Mag 62
  • KK
  • LL
  • MM

The 16mm film magazines were A to K and AA to HH.

I believe that one of the Apollo 13 film magazines was reused on the ASTP mission.
