Moonpans.com Press Release

For the first time, a complete set of Apollo lunar surface panoramas has been produced, which are available signed by the Moonwalkers who took the photos whilst exploring the moon.

The high quality panoramic prints, are available from each of the Apollo moon landing missions, and have been signed by a moonwalker from each landing crew.

Over 30 years ago men walked on the moon for the first time. During those 6 moon landing missions many 360 degree panoramas were taken by the Apollo astronauts consisting of several photos which were then glued together by NASA when they returned.

30 years on and using modern digital technology Mike Constantine of moonpans.com assembled these panoramas into their full glory.

The results are spectacular; each panorama has been carefully assembled from very high-res scans to produce beautiful seamless images and prints.

Many of the astronauts were so impressed with the quality of the prints, that they requested one for their own wall.

"The reaction of the Astronauts when they see the panoramas has been fantastic," says Mike Constantine. "They all said it brought back memories from their great adventure exploring the moon."

Alan Bean who was the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 12 and now paints scenes from the Apollo Moon landings commented that the panoramas were a great resource for his Art.

"Its things like that which makes it all worthwhile, I never thought when I made the pans that the guys who actually took the photos on the lunar surface would ever see them, let alone request to own one!"
