Is there an online guide to shuttle astronaut autopens?

I'm aware of Chris Spain's excellent site but it doesn't cover shuttle astronauts. Also, the site he lists as covering astronauts including the shuttle era appears to no longer exist.

I have several signatures from STS-51L and would like to check if they are genuine or autopen.

Space Directory, Astronaut and Cosmonaut Autographs is a very good site with many of the shuttle autopens listed.

Thanks Fred. While an excellent site and well worth noting, it only has examples of two of the seven STS-51L astronauts. It would be nice to have examples of the others.

Here you also find a lot of autopen examples: Apollo Mission Photos

I'm looking for large, clear scans of shuttle crew Autopens. Preferably later crews that are not included on Chris Spain's site or the spacedirectory.org.uk site.

If you have one you are willing to share, please email them to me directly.

Thanks for your consideration.

I can't find my autopen guide at the moment, but do STS-7 autopens exist, both for the litho as a whole and the crew individually?

I was thrilled when I just received a full crew signed STS-134 lithograph. How could I tell if this might be autopenned?

I know it's extremely rare to receive one of these, but if it wasn't how would I know? Did they sign a bunch before the flight?

Also, they all used the same pen.

If you want I can send you on a high res scan of the STS-134 autopenned litho I have. Just email me and I will send it on ASAP so you can have a good look at it. I can't find an email address for you.

I'm here if you need me! — Cian
