Astro X Cosmonautics Stereo Camera


Astro X A single specimen of a 35 mm handheld camera was made to take photographs of the lunar surface during the never realized Soviet effort to land a cosmonaut on the moon between the years of 1969-1974. This camera was part of a lunar module (LK) space-suit "Krechet" Extravehicular Lunar spacesuit. The 35 mm photographic device is equipped with three objective lenses that form three stereo mates on film. It has a mechanical shutter and a release button on its surface and a removable cassette and external power supply fixed to the space-suit. Viewfinding is performed with the help of removable frames, which are also part of the space-suit set. This camera is a one of a kind, produced at the Ukrainian Defense Complex factory during 1968-1969, passed state inspection and is stamped with the mark "top secret".
