S66-45328 (19 July 1966) --- Ultraviolet spectra of stars in the Carina-Vela region of the southern Milky Way. These objective-grating spectra were obtained by astronauts John W. Young and Michael Collins during Gemini-10 stand-up EVA on July 19, 1966, with a 70mm Maurer camera and its f/3.3 focal length lens. The spectra extends from 2,200 angstroms to about 4,000 angstroms. The spacecraft was docked to the horizon-stabilized Agena-10; thus giving an apparent field of rotation resulting from the four-degree-per-minute orbital motion during the 20-second exposure time.
