Paper Abstract

With the advent of Ranger probes and more advanced reconnaissance systems, telescopic photography will continue to play a significant role in the study of the lunar surface during the next few years. A new astronomical camera has been designed and fabricated in support of the Air Force lunar charting program at ACIC, and the features incorporated into this design make it one of the most accurate photographic tools ever used in the field of astronomy.
