This unique camera bracket was modified for airglow horizon photography (Experiment S011) during the Gemini XI mission in September 1966. To obtain preferable angles for the photographs, NASA created this bracket for this particular experiment, though it created a need to modify their normal pointing of the spacecraft for such photographs using a trial-and-error method for the highest altitude images.

NASA transferred this bracket to the Museum in 1971 with other Gemini camera equipment.
