Lunar orbiter photographic data, (NSSDC ) [Mary Beeler] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : Mary Beeler. The Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon is considered the definitive reference manual to the global photographic coverage of the Moon.

The images contained within the atlas are excellent for studying lunar morphology because they were obtained at low to moderate Sun angles. The book has been organized to make it easy for astronomers to use, enabling ground-based images and views to be compared with the Orbiter photographs.

The photographs are striking for their consistent Sun angles (for uniform appearance).Cited by: Lunar orbiter Lunar orbiter photographic data book data. [Mary Beeler; K Michlovitz] Home.

The Lunar Orbiter orbital photographs were transmitted to Earth as analog data after onboard scanning of the original film into a series of strips. The data were written to magnetic tape and also to film. The film data were used to create hand-made mosaics of Lunar Orbiter frames.

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is a NASA robotic spacecraft currently orbiting the Moon in an eccentric polar mapping orbit. LRO data is essential for planning NASA's future human and robotic missions to the Moon.

Lunar Orbiter V completed the photography of the far side and collected additional images of 36 sites of scientific interest. The Lunar Orbiters had an ingenious imaging system, which consisted of a dual-lens camera, a film processing unit, a readout scanner, and a film handling apparatus.

The Lunar Orbiter program was a series of five unmanned lunar orbiter missions launched by the United States from through Intended to help select Apollo landing sites by mapping the Moon's surface, they provided the first photographs from lunar orbit.

All five missions were successful, and 99% of the Moon was mapped from photographs taken with a resolution of 60 meters (Template.

The spacecraft acquired photographic data from August 6 to 18,and readout occurred until Aug A total of high resolution and medium resolution frames at resolution down to 2 meters were acquired, bringing the cumulative photographic coverage by the 5 Lunar Orbiters.

Experiment performance was nominal until the final readout on Aug A detailed description of the experiment, a bibliography, and indexes of all the available Lunar Orbiter 1 through 5 photos are contained in the report 'Lunar Orbiter Photographic Data,' NSSDC 69.

The Lunar Orbiter 1 robotic spacecraft, part of NASA's Lunar Orbiter program, was the first American spacecraft to orbit the was designed primarily to photograph smooth areas of the lunar surface for selection and verification of safe landing sites for the Surveyor and Apollo missions.

It was also equipped to collect selenodetic, radiation intensity, and micrometeoroid impact data. According to Waring, the strange structures were photographed by NASA and featured in the book “ Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas ” by Charles Byrne.

This features maps of the entire Moon, with the locations, sizes and shapes of all Lunar Orbiter photos marked on them, along with extensive technical.Lunar Orbiter photographic data was never encoded; instead, data was transmitted as frequency-modulated analog signals.

All other data from the spacecraft were encoded and sent on the subcarrier frequency as described above. The temperature control subsystem protected all of the spacecraft’s other subsystems from the extreme temperature.
