Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. Torquing angles essentially the same, and we're going to go ahead and torque them now.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Could you give us a—an AUTO optics check to a third star or a different star from the one you've been using?

Michael Collins (CMP)

Sure, be glad to. I can go back and do the whole thing and pick different stars.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

I don't think there—there's any need to do that. We'd just like to confirm it with a different star, since that roll angle was a little larger than we expected.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. I have a TLI-plus-11-hour PAD when you're ready to copy.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Old star number 30 looks like it is right dab smack in the middle of the sextant.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, 11 This is TLI-plus-11-hours. P37 format: 01344 4793, minus 165 04923. Read back. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. 01344 4793, minus 165 04923. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

This is Houston. Readback correct. Out.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Do you have any update for the roll, pitch and yaw angles on the top of page 37 in the flight plan. Or are they still good?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

That's for the optics calibration?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Yes, indeed. I'll give them to you in just a second here.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, 11. For the optics calibration I've got 346.5 for roll, 345.0 for pitch, and 007.8 for yaw. The pen-and-ink attitude corrections in your book for P23 are good. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Thank you.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

And we're going to hand over to Hawaii in about 5 or 6 seconds, here. We'll have a momentary COMM dropout.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. Be advised your friendly White Team has come on for its first shift, and if we can be of service, don't hesitate to call.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Thank you very much. And we're about to take our marks, Charlie, on this P23 optics CAL. I've got it in the sextant now, and I'm about to split the image and Mark.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. We're watching.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. We have scrubbed the midcourse 1. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. Understand you've scrubbed midcourse 1.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. We see your middle gimbal angle getting pretty big. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Well, it was, Charlie, but in going from one AUTO maneuver to another, we took over control and have gone around gimbal lock; and we're about to give control back to the DAP.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. We see it increasing now.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Hey, maybe you better call Lou and tell him we might be a little bit late for dinner.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Okay. Sure will. We'd like for you to turn on—the fan on in O2 tank number 2, Buzz. And, 11, did you—on your optics calibrations, did you proceed or recall the program? Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

We recalled the program.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And O2 fan number 2 is on.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. I've got a CRYO pressure light and a MASTER ALARM. It's reset.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We expected that. That's why we had you turn the fan on. We were getting pretty close to the caution and warning limits. We were trying to prevent that.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. You're looking at our DELTA-R DELTA-V. It looks like DELTA-R is pretty large, there. We wanted to talk to you about it before we incorporate it.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Stand by, Mike. We don't have anything on our downlink here, I don't think, on the DSKY. Stand by.
