COMPLETE LUNAR ORBIT PHOTO PLANS FOR APOLLO 13.
Lunar Orbital Science Contingency Flight Chart (LSC), Apollo Mission 13, 11 April 1970 Launch Date. Color lunar map, first edition, March 4, 1970. 14 x 58 inches. Scale 1:7,5000,000. Full line plots of lunar orbit ground tracks are shown with multiple colors depending on which particular orbit is plotted. Near-side and far-side lunar shadow terminator areas are shown with long green line marker ticks for orbits 1, 15, 30, and 45. Earthshine limits are shown for orbits 1 and 46. All are plotted perpendicular to the spacecraft orbital path.

Identical to the chart issued to Lovell, Haise, and Swigert for the flight, having the SKB 32100082-326 part number printed in a legend block near the lower center. This chart locates the surface "targets of opportunity" with numerous colored geometric markings defining surface locations to observe and photograph. Additional color codes specify camera lenses to use, either 80 or 250 mm. A graph plot provides information on sextant photography with the associated shutter speeds.
SIGNED and INSCRIBED: "FRED HAISE, Apollo 13 LMP."
