Abstract

The Naval Research Laboratory XUV solar spectrograph (S082A) and spectroheliograph (S082B) in the Apollo Telescope Mount of Skylab required Schumann-type photographic film in quantities greater than had ever before been needed. The procurement, testing, handling, and processing of this film are described. Eastman Kodak type 104 and a small quantity of type 101 were used. All problems that were anticipated were met satisfactorily, and excellent results were obtained. Two new problems arose; fog associated with the stainless steel carriers and a large reduction of contrast and maximum density for the flight film that was exposed to the space vacuum.
