Command Module interior
This view into the Apollo 14 Command Module shows the left side of the cockpit where the Commander (in this case, Alan Shepard) would sit during the launch into orbit. The couch is clearly seen with the lower section in the launch configuration with the legs up. The hand controller is between the left and center couch and the instrument panel in front of the astronauts is easily seen. Imagine living in this relatively small space with two companions for up to two weeks! You wouldn't have to ask me twice. This image was taken with the kit lens on my 20D at 35mm focal length. The on camera flash was used with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/4.5, ISO 1600.
