Lunar Orbiter Mission 4
Lunar Orbiter Mission 4 produced most of the photos in this book. This scientific mission was planned to systematically cover the nearside of the Moon. Extensive 1-meter (1-m) photography had been taken of the candidate Lunar Orbiter landing sites by missions 1 through 3, and the geologists wanted moderate-resolution photography (about 50 m) of so many large features on the nearside that a systematic survey mission was appropriate.
