The COAS Target Reticule is wrong, the one now is I believe a shuttle Target reticule the Apollo COAS as shown on Page 532 of the 'Apollo Operations Handbook Vol 1 Spacecraft Description' shows the right screen with the Elevation scale shown. I would post a pic but I don't know how.

Of the real COAS reticule, or the supposedly wrong one?

Click on "Additional Options..." on the reply screen and add the pic as an attachment.

Hello there! A quick search brings up this. Is our reticle really wrong?

Logged

My Project Apollo work in progress:
* New detailed Lunar Module Ascent stage with virtual cockpit (VC currently planned as eye candy only) 18 % done

My Project Apollo work to be continued:
* new Service Module SPS engine bell
* various Saturn V textures, exhaust textures
* SIM Bay for the SM


My long-term plans are to create a:
* New detailed Lunar Module descent stage (eventually models of all flown LM's)
* New F-1 engines for the S-1C stage showing the foil (batting) insulation
* New LUT and launch pad (if nobody else does it)

Hi Happy

Well, gimp1992 is right when he says that our current COAS reticle is a Shuttle reticle. And it even is an original one Thumbs Up

But the two reticles, the Apollo and Shuttle one, are quite similar. The only thing which is different is the missing scale on the Shuttle COAS (and those two small "hooks" on the left and right side). If you wish, I could try to add the scale to our COAS. But be aware that some NASA drawings sometimes differ from flown hardware. This also seems to be the case for the Apollo COAS. The scale looks different on drawings than on real photos of the COAS taken during missions. There are Apollo COAS photos available in high quality. See below...


This is the template I made for NASSP (derived from a Shuttle COAS photo taken during a mission):




And this is the Apollo COAS as flown:

At the bottom of the page there is a photo from Apollo 14 and it shows the COAS with the scale. If you could add the right Reticle  Moonwalker it would be appreciated.

I'll do it as soon as the LM panel stuff is finished (not too much to do anymore).
