Andy Saunders's remastered images are so clear and real that they are the next best thing to being there. That said, I have been enthralled with 60s space exploration from Mercury through Apollo and built models of the the Saturn V on the launch pad, the LEM on the lunar surface, and the docked Apollo Soyuz modules when I was a kid.

It quickly went on to become the highest grossing photography book of the last 20 years and the biggest selling book on the Apollo program since records began. For the first time, every image has been digitally remastered from the original flight film, or HD transfers of the 16mm ‘movie’ film, to produce the highest quality Apollo photographs, and the most complete photographic record of these historic missions ever published. Young Americans today simply don't appreciate what was accomplished in the 1960s, and, indeed, in the 20th century. In any history book, the narrative changes based on what is or isn't mentioned, and I took note of a few things he revisits several times in the captions or chapter openings: the problem-solving and distinctly human nature of the astronauts, and the way they spoke (in the fashion William Shatner later did) about how the trip made them more reverent of the Earth and the need to protect the environment. My son is interested in photography so all the details about the camera settings was a brilliant addition from his perspective but with the new resurgence in space exploration he has also found every page to be endlessly fascinating.MVG Very well put together coffee table book with compelling images from the Lunar landing and Apollo missions of the late 1960's and early 1970's. America is a great nation that has accomplished so much in advancing mankind; and yet, we can still do so much more! The information along with each photograph also helps tell the story of the program in such an immersive way. A jaw dropping wonder of a book in which art, history, production and design come together seamlessly in a love letter to the achievements of the Apollo space program and its manned flights.

This is as close as any of us will get to joining the Apollo astronauts on their historic missions to the moon-and it's a lot closer than we ever thought possible. Captions are provided with each image, giving a reference number and the context for the images: what the image is showing, how the image was taken and, if known, who took the image and when. Taking newly available digital scans and applying pain-staking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques, he has created the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Not only is this a stunning collection, but it’s the best we’ll have until humans make the next trip across the cislunar sea, cameras poised. Now, for the first time, APOLLO REMASTERED brings the glory of Apollo and the explorers into sharp focus.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. But in Apollo Remastered, imaging specialist Andy Saunders takes care to introduce newly enhanced and crisp versions of the original photographs from the missions….

Arranged by mission, from pre-Apollo missions through Apollo 17, there are also sections on the development of space photography, photographic equipment, scans, images, and restoration, and a list of acronyms. I want to dip in and experience this book throughout weeks, not just checking off that I "looked" at the pictures. Leider muß ich dem Rezensenten Christian Eissel recht geben: auch mir wurde das Buch in einem viel zu großen Karton geschickt, in dem es nur durch minimales gerolltes Packpapier geschützt hin und her rutschen konnte.For decades it was thought there were no direct images of Neil Armstrong {I get to name tag Neil Armstrong! Panoramic studies are created by seamlessly stitching together images originally taken for stereoscopic purposes. Apollo Remastered by Andy Saunders provided me with a masterful pictorial review of my great days serving as a crewman on four lunar missions.

Taking newly available digital scans and applying painstaking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques, he has created the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Fifty years later, Apollo Remastered showcases 400 photos from the missions to the Moon in stunning clarity. They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but the image fronting a new tome of astronaut photography speaks volumes for what is found inside.If the image is available as a Limited Edition or Special Edition then the Open Edition is strictly limited to a maximum size of 20 Inch (51cm) along its shortest dimension. Punctured with crisp whites and an unbelievable amount of visual detail - they wouldn’t look out of place in a movie like Interstellar or Gravity. Now, for the first time, Apollo Remastered brings the glory of Apollo and the explorers into sharp focus. However, there are a couple of egregious typos for such a meticulous book--dates on Apollo 12 and 15 summaries are wrong.
