Abstract:

The report summarizes work done in the following areas 1 Use selenodetic measures of star-trailed lunar photographs in a reduction with best available values of I and F to provide three-dimensional adjusted coordinates of not less than 45 lunar control points measured on 20 lunar photographic plates. 2 Continue the cartographic position program and provide measures of about 1000 control points on each of six additional selenodetic photographs. 3 Perform the necessary scientific work required to place the telescope in high performance condition for selenodetic research. The mirror was Kanogen coated, aluminized, and optical figuring completed.
