Apollo 17

by Al » Sun Dec 13, 2009 5:23 pm

I was looking for moon pictures for a xmas present for my son and came across this archive: http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html
Voila...a few minutes later I had this awesome pano for his wall. 8 images...too bad the scans are not full resolution -- the camera was a 2 1/4 square hasselblad I think. But not bad the full size is 7x2k pixels. 8x1 images.

Oliviervallouise, very cool -- I missed yours first time around. Did you download all of the photos? I hopped around a bit but have not yet been through them systematically. The archive has dozens of rolls of film to look through, but I don't know how to write a script that would download them all at once so it's fairly tedious looking for what might be engaging sets of images. Any idea what focal length they used most often? I have had a tough time getting some of them to knit together well. It's also sort of funny, some of the astronauts are better photographers than others...the images near Tracy's rock are amazing.

Hello,

Could not resist... :-)
I copied the pictures from
http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/alsj/a17/
using HTTrack, seems that the 21 images (AS16-107-17420HR to 17440HR) make a full 360° view..

See here :

Still downloading images, let's see what we can get...
good night!

Hi Al, an easy way to download multiple files is to use an addon for the Firefox browser called Flashget http://www.flashget.com then simply flashget all...

Al, for each roll of film, there is an index with thumbnails : http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/alsj/a17/A17_Mag140.jpg. You can find the panoramas and then you download the pictures.

I made dozens of panoramas and I posted only a few on the forum.

Another one from Apollo 17 :

Hi Gordon, Thanks for the tip. I found a program called DeepVaccum that worked like a charm...http://www.hexcat.com/deepvacuum/index.html I feel a bit guilty...it made it all rather easy to fetch all the images from a decade of space travel...
