Speaking of which, someone made a 3d computer model.
So the model also has the upper wishbone not attached to the frame.
Yet, the NASA LRV operations manual diagram does have it attached to the frame.
Before I move on, another photo has jumped out. And here is a problem.
Apparently this was taken with a 60mm lens. with the brightness of the moon this would have required a high f-stop, meaning the depth of field would
be should be larger, but this is not what we see.
We see a small depth of field. With both the foreground and background objects out of focus.
With a 60mm lens at a high f-stop everything should be pretty much in focus, you would not expect to see this variation.
One other complicating matter is how the astro could pull this shot off so perfectly given the above factors, WITHOUT A VIEWFINDER.
I doubt you could find one professional photographer that could pull this shot off, in ONE SHOT .. there was no second try. They moved on.
on with more LRV issues...
