Okay, now step three meters back, two meters to the right, point the camera straight ahead (not at the helmet) and take a picture. What do you get?
It should look something like this. This is the photo the OP cropped:

I cannot believe that you have 18 stars (as of posting this) for your remarks mate...just shows that there really are a lot of ridiculously uninformed members here, who know nothing about the Apollo missions AT ALL!

Crikey, the third crew member was orbiting in the command module...who do you think the lander docked with to return to Earth...Santa Claus?

Blimey...

D ont you see the larger cross hairs in the centre of the photo?
Do you realise what angle that reflected persons torso would have
to be at in order to take the photo up such an incline, and to answer
your question i have read all posts in this thread. The tripod is the
focus of both the astronaught and the camera, the distance between
the astronaught and tripod isnt sufficient for the reflected persons
incorrect alignment if he was the photographer. Which he so obviously
is not, why cant the photo be from a seperate source to the reflected
person?

It took me a while to grasp this as I just got up - I think I have it now. One man in a space suit and a reflection of the second man in his visor. So yea who took the pic of man in the space suit. Good question as I don't see a camera on the man in the reflection. He hardly looks like he has on a space suit at all. Might try an enhanced zoom on this pic, see what I come up with. The image has a staged appearance - very interesting. I have seen a couple of other men on the moon images that didn't look right.

Always nice to start a day on the moon - more coffee - now!

Mate, good effort i'll admit, but your setup is completely incorrect.

First off, the helmet in your recreation is at the wrong angle. The in the NASA image, the helmet is angled downwards, whereas yours is virtually pointing up.

Second, the figure reflected in the original is not in the center of the helmet reflection, it is much further up and to the left of center.

Third, the cameras on Apollo were chest mounted, and not raised up to the astronauts eye level.

Fourth, the reflected figure does not have a chest mounted camera attached to it's suit (which also does not appear to be standard Apollo issue!)

It's all wrong i'm afraid, but as i say good effort...care to rearrange the helmet and the camera/your position to match the original properly and try again? (we'll overlook point #4 for the sake of argument!)

Seriously, i'd be interested to see the result.

Thanks.

You entirely missed the point. I did not do the recreation, bokronon2010 did the recreation. It's up to him to recreate the original uncropped photograph which I provided above.

All of these issues have already been addressed elsewhere in the thread. Just back up two pages and read from there, keeping in mind that the photo in the OP was cropped from the photo I reproduced above.

The OP cropped the photo in order to create the illusion that the reflection was wrong.

Lie.

DJW lied again.

used the image: history.nasa.gov...

I don't think that word means what you think it means. Other than my reducing the picture to fit on the page (with subsequent loss of resolution), what difference do you see between the two uncropped pictures?

Edit to correct formatting.

yes i have, if you zoom in on the reflection, there is no "back pack" so were is the o2 tank? so then what is he the person in the reflection breathing?
Go to page one the op first photo and zoom in. the one pic just below it, the first pic, has a better view of the back of the person in the reflection.

I give up. Look, it's one of three things:

1. An alien monster
2. Some dude in surfer shorts
3. A grainy, distorted reflection of the astronaut who took the picture

This thread has gone on for 17 pages and no-one wants to read any of them. Zoom in all you want and imagine what you please. Oh yeah, and feel free to call me a liar for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Pathetic.

If you had read the thread, then you would have found this post on page 2.

actually the astronaut u r looking at doesnt match up with the "astronaut" in the reflection!

idc if he is standing back a ways...you'd be able to see with a reasonable doubt...but not in this case!

yes did read it but show me were his back pack is?
For if i new how to do it i would bring up some other photos that show, at a much further distance, the back pack. if i new how i would high lite the back of the person in the reflection, and do not say it's on his chest not for it is ti big it would cover his face mask.

Just for clarity, I'll admit I've only read about 7 pages, but the NASA "back pack" appears to have fairly visible tubage and it would appear from my view point too protrude over the shoulders and be behind the helmet of an astronaut wearing the apparatus, I can't see any of this in the reflection.

I believe the none NASA issue trousers can be explained by shadow and I can see an apparent camera physically and in shadow, I can also see what could be a "back pack" in the shadow but it could equally be his arm and hand or a none NASA apparatus.

Again this is just for clarity and I'm happy to hear an explanation.

I firmly believe NASA went to the moon, what happened there and after I'm open to be entertained.

Oh, my mistake. Reading your post, i assumed you had recreated the helmet reflection...ok, praise to you for a good effort rescinded!
(and now goes to bokronon2010 instead..so there!)
Ok, minor praise for not trying to steal his thunder.

Although, i attributed the image to yourself incorrectly, the four points of error i raised are still very much to the point of the discussion...so i've not completely missed the point really eh!
