Every search I have made for an STS-51A image gallery has drawn a blank. All of the obvious NASA image galleries seem to have a big gap in shuttle missions after STS-8.

Is there any site (NASA or otherwise) with a good collection of STS-51A images in high definition? Is was, after all, one of NASA's most successful missions!

Not a website, but Retro Space Images has a CD with 150 high-resolution STS-51A photos.

As well, for whatever reason, there just aren't a whole lot of high-res images pre-STS-79 on any of NASA's websites.

There are exceptions - I was amazed to find a few from STS-26R and 39, for example - but when I needed photos, I did a Google search for a particular astronaut or mission along with the search term 'high resolution.' I forget where exactly, but that allowed me to find the one high-res photo of Jemison on STS-47.
