Description

    Apollo 8: Onboard 16mm Film, Magazines H, I, J, K, and R, Early Generation Duplicates on Two Period Reels. From the archives of NASA Engineer Donald T. Hamilton comes an amazing find. Offered here are two 7" reels of silent color 16mm film contained in vintage metal storage cans with period labels, as follows.
    Reel 1 of 2: Handwritten label reads "Apollo 8 Onboard/ Mag R- Crew Activities/ Mag J- Lunar Surface/ Mag H- Earth Lunar Surface" It is also marked in black felt tip on top: "reel 1 of 2" and on the side: "Apollo 8 Onboard".
    Reel 2 of 2: Handwritten label reads "Apollo 8 Onboard/ Mag I- Lunar Earth/ Mag K- Lunar & Crew". It is also marked in black felt tip on top: "reel 2 of 2" and on the side: "Apollo 8 Onboard".

    These were the movies taken by the onboard Maurer 16mm Data Acquisition Camera. There is amazing footage of Earth, the lunar surface, and the crew inside the spacecraft. Magazine "R" is particularly humorous and interesting as it is titled "Home Movies." This is likely one of the few extant sets of this footage from the period of the mission. The Internet Archive has these magazines archived at http://bit.ly/2mGhp1M (starting at approximately 30:00). Now you can own our own. We have not viewed these reels but they appear to be fine. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.
