Lot 9438: Color satin-finish 20 x 16 panoramic photo of the Apollo 16 lunar module and rover on the moon's surface, with the American flag to the far right, signed in black felt tip, "Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 LMP," who adds, "Apollo 16 spent more than 20 hours exploring the moon. This involved emplacement and activation of scientific equipment and experiments, the collection of nearly 213 pounds of rock and soil samples, and the evaluation and use of rover–2 (our lunar car) over the roughest and blockiest surface yet encountered on the moon." In fine condition. An immersing, wide-frame portrayal of the lunar surface, further enhanced by Duke's wonderfully detailed inscription.
