Square format Apollo archive images have been slightly cropped to achieve a 5:4 Landscape aspect ratio. Many of the original images were captured on film using the 70mm (2.25” x 2.25”) Hassleblad Lunar Camera which produces a square (1:1) ratio. You may select “Full Frame” next to the order button if you want the untouched original size. The default is Landscape.
