Collection Item Summary:
The Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is a CCD camera attached to a powerful telescope with a 700mm focal length. It can take black and white images of the Moon with a resolution of less than a meter.
This flight spare instrument is identical to the flown instrument built by Malin Space Science Systems. NASA transferred the camera to the Museum in 2016.
