    Apollo 17 Roll of SIMBAY Film, Master Direct Negative, Dated August 14. 1973. A 245mm film roll of direct negatives taken in panoramic form aboard the Scientific Instrument Module (SIM) Bay of Apollo 17. The label affixed at the top of the original canister reads: "Apollo 17, MAG Pan, Film type: 2422, Part 14A of 41, Frames 2403 to 2440, Date 14 Aug 73, Master, Direct Neg." Canister is 10" x 6". Each frame is approximately 48" long and 10" wide, making this an extremely long piece of film. One of the most dramatic moments of this, the last manned mission to the moon, was Ron Evans' deep space EVA to retrieve the original film from the Itek panoramic camera housed in the Command/Service Module SIM Bay. NASA used these large, high resolution panoramas to create and improve lunar maps. Very fine. All proceeds from this lot will be donated to SPACE 3.0, a 501c3 charitable foundation ( .
