Apollo 12 Flown to the Moon Oribital Charts

Taken from the Apollo 12 CSM Orbital Photo Chart "B"
From the personal collection of Astronaut Dick Gordon

These sections of lunar orbital chart are taken from the Apollo XII Command and Service Module Orbital Photo Chart "B". Which was flown and used in Lunar Orbit by the Apollo 12 Crew during their mission in November 1969.

They show late orbit ground tracks of revolutions 39, 42 and 45 over the surface of the moon. They also depict related features such as Control Points, Ground Tracks, Initial Point, Landing Sites, Surveyor, Terminators, and much more.

Compiled from nearly 4000 photographs taken from lunar orbit by the Ranger and the Lunar Orbiter, the Orbital Monitor Chart "B" was one of only two charts that were used on the Apollo 12 mission. The Ranger and Lunar Orbiter programs were a series of unmanned space missions in the 1960s whose objective was to obtain close-up images of the lunar surface to create a comprehensive photo-map for use during the Apollo Moon landings by the crew as a guide for Lunar Navigation and to identify specific landmarks.

Each Map comes with a Dick Gordon hand signed COA

These orbital chart sections differ from our other Apollo 12 Flown Landmark Maps in that these are sections cut from a larger map, printed on very thin paper, whereas the Landmark maps are individual pages originally housed in a ring binder and printed on photographic paper.
