I am trying to create a list of the maps related to the space program. Anyone knowledgeable out there who can help me with this list? I will post what I put together. I am not ready to collect these yet, but am getting interested.

Ben, can you elaborate a bit on what you're looking to collect? Are you referring to astronomical charts used by astronauts to navigate or maps of space facilities (or both)?

I wanted to bump this topic. I see a number of Earth Orbit and Lunar Orbit charts on eBay and other auctions and wanted to learn more about them.

Outside of "flown" charts/maps are some more desirable than others? Some more rare than others?

Who were they used by?

After "window shopping" on eBay, I found that there's two types of shuttle charts being listed. One set is the Mission Chart and another is Groundtrack Chart (Mission Chart). What is the difference between the two since both are characterized as "Mission Charts?"

Are there any Mission Charts for the Orion EFT-1? I've seen only "flight profiles" rather than these types of charts.

All times are CT (US)
