And whatever you do, don't shoot off the set.

Actually the neat shot you can get there is a gray mountainous landscape with a big blue-white earth in the black sky. Wait for a full earth if you can.

And, whatever you do, don't shoot with flare hitting the lens that will make the contrast chart totally worthy when someone is analysing it with a densitometer. . .

Cut the guy a break. He had a camera hard mounted to his chest and he had no viewfinder.

And whatever you do, don't question the photographic authenticity.

Yeah, I met him. Why would he be lying to everyone he meets 40 (then only 27) years after the fact?

LOL

I'd be curious to see what details I overlooked after being shot into space on what at the time was the largest rocket ever built, then travel for 4 days in a tin can. Land said tin can on another celestial object, then, while in a rigid spacesuit, manage to bounce around on a surface with 1/6th the gravity of earth...

I'm amazed he remembered to remove the lenscap..

Those that believe the moon landing was a hoax are the same people who think WWF or Bigfoot is real. :lol:

That reminds me of the Soviet Venus lander story. It landed, the lens caps popped off, and they got pictures. One of the experiments was a probe that was supposed to test the hardness of the surface. The pictures show it very clearly landing right in the middle of a lens cap. Oy, Murphy on Venus, go figure..... ;-)
