I am really excited about all of this and that is why I posted in two different threads, hoping to get help. I have been searching and searching and
searching. I discovered James Irwin's ship Apollo 15 actually took many photographs of the lunar sky with a Fairchild 35 mm, lens 76 mm, stop at 2.8
and shutter 1.5 . However, I combed Irwin's personal sites, Nasa's dedicated to Apollo 15 and so on, nothing for me there.
Irwin, Scott and Worden took hundreds and perhaps thousands of stellar pictures to image the constelations above the lunar landscape they were mapping
Then they would orient the terrestrial photo given what they knew abpout the star location within the celestrial sphere. THIS WAS HOW THE MOON WAS
MAPPED , at least for these trips.
But I cannot find any of these images. I wrote to NASA general information, the ALSJ general information, and some historical-astrophoto buffs, and
I am getting nowhere. I want to create my own website. I have a program, a fancy Huggin/stitich program. I'll plan to put all of the pics
together and create a Night Skies Of The Apollo Mission Sites. It will be so cool. I just need the photos. They cannot be that hard to find.
