Apollo data analysis experiment S-211. Low brightness image data analysisThe scientific analyses of photographic data in astronomy obtained by the Apollo Orbital Science Photographic Team during Apollo flights 14 through 17 are described. Some of the tasks are the collection and correlation of Quick-Look listings, working prints for further study, the generation of post-mission reports, and project reports. Postflight calibrations of the flight photographic systems are carried out, and lens vignetting effects are corrected. The data handling is described and includes photodigitization of photographic scenes, calibrated step-wedges, and vignetting patterns, which are followed by computer program processing of the film density readings.
