A flown film magazine from the extreme ultraviolet spectroheliograph (S082A), which was used in conjunction with the Apollo Telescope Mount (ATM) on the Skylab mission to photograph the Sun and its spectra. There were four film cameras flown on the ATM, and the magazines containing the film were
loaded via Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA). After being exposed, the magazines were then unloaded via another EVA. The XUV spectroheliograph, which was manufactured for the Naval Research Laboratory, produced simultaneous monochromatic images of the entire sun over a broad range of the extreme ultraviolet spectrum. While on Skylab, it acquired a total of 1023 useful exposures, most of which were of extreme scientific interest. Included in this lot is the original camera storage record dated 12/4/73.
