N.B. Apollo 15 was the only mission that allowed astronauts to visit a lunar canyon. From Station 9A on the edge of the canyon known as Hadley Rille, Scott used his 500mm telephoto lens to photograph the stunning landscape of its opposite wall in front of him. The rocky crater in the wall of the rille is 100 meters wide and was named "Debris-filled" crater. The lip of the rille is just above the blocky areas, and beyond is the mare surface. Additional NASA negative numbers include AS15-89-12073.
Estimate $2,000-3,000
