    Description

    Apollo 12 Command Module Flown Fold-Out Lunar Photo-Map, Signed by Richard Gordon. Four-section black and white folding photo-map of the lunar surface, used by command module pilot Richard Gordon on the Apollo 12 mission. Gordon has inscribed and signed the photo-map in dark blue Sharpie, in full: "Flown on Apollo XII. Used to track landmarks on Fra Mauro, the landing site for Apollo XIV. Richard Gordon, CMP." Accompanied by a one-page handwritten sheet, on Apollo XII letterhead, providing added detail regarding the use of this map. In part: "This foldout photomap was used by me on Apollo XII to facilitate tracking with the Command Module (CM) sextant... The landmark designated FM 1 was the preferred sighting for the Fra Mauro landing. The Fra Mauro area was to have been the landing site for Apollo XIII but because that landing flight was aborted, it became the site for Apollo 14 commanded by Alan Shepard." Both the map and Gordon's handwritten explanation are in very fine condition, and would make a wonderful addition to any space collection. From the collection of Richard Gordon.
