The Surveyor probes were the first U.S. spacecraft to land safely on the Moon and each was equipped with a television camera identical to the test article shown here. This camera consisted of a vidicon tube, 25- and 100-mm focal length lenses, shutters, and color filters.
This camera was transferred to NASM by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1976.
