Copies of the first Apollo SIM Bay negatives, showing the lunar surface as seen from the Apollo 15 Command Module Endeavour. This was the first Apollo mission to use a panoramic camera to photograph long sections of the surface, 205 x 13 miles, on 4 foot x 4½ inch strips of film. The film take-up cassette was removed from the panoramic camera by the Command Module Pilot during trans-Earth trajectory, and was returned to Earth in the Command Module. This roll duplicates the original negatives at 1:1 scale.
