Again, you'll be better off referring to the checklists in that regard.

Vinny003,
TLI procedure is detailed in the Apollo 8 flightplan spreadsheet. It can be found at the top of the 'maneuver' tab

Please tell me the step by step procedure to fire the SVIB engine to burn out of earth orbit using the LTMFD.
On either IMFD/LTMFD, first enter the settings page for the MFD and ensure you're using Apollo P30 mode. Then simply plan ANY (If you tell it to plow your spacecraft back into the atmosphere, it'll do it...) burn with the MFD (do not use the autoburn function, just plan the maneuver). Head over to Project Apollo MFD > IMFD, hit REQ and then SIVB, the SIVB will now automatically perform the burn planned in IMFD/LTMFD

How do I get the velocity, altitude and vertical speed info on the DSKY? Thanks!
Try entering VERB 16 NOUN 62, that should give you your Velocity, vertical speed, and altitude respectively, I'm not 100% sure it will work though (it didn't for me). Although, you can simply get that information from the Project Apollo MFD (just imagine the MFD as Houston mission control if you think that's too unrealistic).

Hi, MrFickles!

Should I get the IMFD too as I already have the LTMFD installed. I think the IMFD is harder to find?? Thanks!

Vinny, I didn't mean to come across as that way, but a fair amount of that information is in the checklist, and I have the feeling the majority of your questions would be answered with a read-through of the checklists. I'm just trying to help save you time, is all.

Hi, eddievhfan1984!

That is okay! You are forgiven! I'm just having a hard time open the the apollo 8 VAGC checklist. I thought the apollo 8 VAGC checklist open with the PDF Adobe acrobat reader. Thanks!

                Cheers,

If you're talking about the Excel-type checklists, no, that won't work. You can use OpenOffice to open those.

Eddievhfan1984!

Is OpenOffice free? I'll see about looking into it! Thanks!

Hi, almostfm!

That is good news! I got a red gimbal lock light lit on the DSKY, I figured that the FDAI 1 is stuck. How do get the FDAI 1 unstuck so the red gimbal lock light on the DSKY go out? Thanks!

                   Cheers,

The instructions for gimbal lock recovery are in the G&N Word checklist. In general:

1. Run V41N20 to reset your gimbals to 0,0,0.
2. (Assuming your GDC's also locked up) Maneuver into an attitude you're relatively sure won't generate another gimbal lock, then run P51 and P52 to get your IMU set up again.
3. Realign the GDC to the IMU.

How did you get the gimbal lock in the first place?

Hi, eddievhfan1984!

Thanks! I'll give that a try! I think what happened is the FDAI 8 ball got too close to the red pole on top of the 8 ball without realizing it.
