Great shot JFM, good to see them back again, been there in '78 the capsule - it is the original one- was not covered in plastic then..I did feel the burned surface of the bottom of the capsule myself....stayed there half a day just taking pictures (Olympus OM-1 400ASA positive film worked well) and made nice pictures, I did walked in Skylab as well (not the real one of cause)
great to see this museum again

@NGC300 - As far as I know, these are originasl. I remember how much the thermic shield of the capsule (the rouded bottom, seen on profile on the pic) was burnt ... In another part of the museum, I did a long stay on the catway beside one of the rare surviving Me-262 (not enough light to shoot).

Hi Izydor ! I shot this slide in poor light condition, since flashlight was not allowed. The scan file corresponds with the slide, concerning light & contrast. Probably these shooting conditions explain also the grain, which was not fully dissolved after GEM's use. Attempting to do more would have led to a destroyed file as a result (I tested that ! :-) )
