Lunar and Planetary Probe Photos

These are photographs of some of the hardware related to unmanned exploration of the moon and planets. Unfortunately, most of the hardware was suspended from the ceiling or put on a pedestal, so it was rather difficult to try to photograph all sides or even to get the detail that I wanted. Oh well...

The photographs show much more detail than these scanned images. If anyone is interested in obtaining photographic copies of those images that I shot, contact me and we'll work something out.
