In order for the Apollo
Lunar Surface Camera to fit inside the MESA when it was closed, it was necessary
to mount it on a bracket at an angle of around 15 degrees. (Otherwise the
cameras handle, designed to be easy to hold with pressurised gloves,
would be in the way of the MESA closing flush against the descent stage.)
As a result, when the MESA
was opened, the television picture was tilted as if the LM had landed
on a slope. (In fact, it had landed on a level place.)
This tilt gives the impression that the ladder
was much steeper than it was so here is 4 minutes of tilt corrected
video showing Armstrong and Aldrin descending.
