Collection Item Summary:

For filming exterior IMAX footage from inside the Space Shuttle, this black fabric shroud was required to limit the amount of light from inside the shuttle that reached the camera lens. The camera was mounted in the windows on a specialized bracket and this shroud was Velcroed to that mount.

NASA transferred this to the Smithsonian with other IMAX equipment in 2012.
