Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall 43. "The five Lunar Orbiter missions flown in 1966-67 were in their own way as amazing and successful as the later Apollo missions. Each spacecraft took actual photographs on a continuous reel of film; the film was then developed on board, and scanned with a special photoelectric system. These signals were transmitted to earth, where the photographs were reconstructed. The Orbiter missions were designed to photograph all possible Apollo landing sites, but this goal was accomplished by the third mission, so Orbiter IV was devoted to photographing the entire lunar near side, thus making possible a photographic lunar atlas of unprecedented quality, while Orbiter V photographed selected features of special interest."
