Surveyor 1 digitized panorama with color photometric target
Filed under NASA lunar missions before 2005, pretty pictures, history
This image was created by Gary Rennilson from more than 80 individual frames shot by the Surveyor 1 spacecraft. The color photometric target was overlaid using a photograph of a spare target in the possession of Justin Rennilson, one of the original Surveyor camera team project members. The Rennilsons were seeking to recreate a similar color Surveyor photograph that appeared in the October 1966 edition of National Geographic.
