LUNAR SURFACE PANORAMA NEGATIVE—APOLLO 15.
Roll of negatives of photographs taken by the panoramic camera in the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay of the Apollo 15 CSM.

Date: 3 Aug 1972. Direct Neg Rectified."

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 by 13 miles, on 4 foot by 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.
