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?

All times are CT (US)
