OK, I posted a picture a few hours ago that "Surfer" (a constant viewer) has pointed out in the comments that has some problems with it even though it is a nice picture. There are crosshairs in the image that seem to disappear behind the moon rover in the picture. The crosshairs are etched into the focus glass plate before the film. I had mentioned incorrectly that they were probably placed as a reference point in the comments. From what information I can find online, it seems that these crosshairs were in the focus plate of the camera, having some experience with photography and the replacement of focus plates (I replaced mine on my Nikon Fe2) I have to say that the pictures do not show the focus plate at all, so the crosshairs were probably placed either after the image was taken, or the images were taken with a camera with a special lens. However, here's some alternate takes on the crosshair problems:

Crosshair Anomalies

Crosshair Anomalies 2

Crosshair Anomalies 3

Crosshair Anomalies 4

Excellent links. I stand corrected on the crosshairs. Not gone, just washed out. The other information is exceedingly intersting. Certainly the fourth link... I have to think on that one. Thanks!
