    Apollo 15 Flown Two-Piece, Northern Hemisphere Star Chart Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified. This 9" square chart on white plastic is made up of two 4.5" x 9" pieces taped together on the verso. It is titled at top "APOLLO STAR CHART" and "NORTHERN HEMISPHERE" and was prepared by the Air Force's Aeronautical Chart and Information Center for NASA. The legends of symbols for the planets and size of the stars are printed at bottom. Worden has signed the verso: "This Star Chart flown/ to the Moon aboard/ Apollo 15/ Al Worden/ Apollo 15 CMP".

I have hand annotated the back of this star chart accordingly..."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
