Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 4 December 2013

Dennis Wingo: Update Wednesday December 4, 2013

We have captured the framelets to complete LOV-115M from tape W5-122. We are capturing the frame lets that we missed before for image LOV-117H from tape W5-121. When this is through in a few minutes we will be complete with our Lunar Orbiter V image captures. On to Lunar Orbiter IV tomorrow!

Oh yes: Austin Epps says that we now have captured over 80,000 framelets!

Dennis Wingo: Status, Wednesday December 4, 2013

I have finished going over every image and tape to see if we have missed capturing anything. We found a tape (M5-110) that had a few frame lets that completed an image (LOV-119M) and a few images and frame lets not properly accounted for in the "book" that we have on tape. We have found one tape that I did not get all the frame lets that we needed off of, and one tape (both Woomera) with a single frame let that we need.

Will get the machine recallibrated for Woomera then get these frame lets and then hopefully tomorrow recalibrate and start running Woomera LOIV tapes!
