The Apollo 14 Command Module, named "Kitty Hawk", sits in the Astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville Florida. This spacecraft carried the crew of Apollo 14, Commander Alan Shepard, Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa, and Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell to the Moon and back in February 1971. Shepard and Mitchell landed their Lunar Module, named "Antares", in the Fra Mauro highlands near Cone Crater where they spent almost two days. This image was taken with the kit lens on my 20D at 18mm focal length. I used the on camera flash with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/4, ISO 1600.
