The pictures, remastered by "Apollo Remastered" author Andy Saunders, show the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) as it was driven by astronauts Commander David Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Jim Irwin on the planet's surface for the first time.

Apollo 15 set several records for crewed spaceflight, including the heaviest payload in a lunar orbit, maximum radial distance traveled on the moon away from the spacecraft, the most lunar surface EVAs and longest duration for lunar surface EVAs, the longest time in lunar orbit, the longest crewed lunar mission, the longest Apollo mission, the first deep space and operational EVA and the first first satellite placed into lunar orbit by a crewed spacecraft

Saunders' photos – including frames shot with a Hasselblad camera – have been stitched into panoramas and include both images taken on the lunar surface and from the Endeavour, which are highlighted in a YouTube video. 

In addition to moonscape shots, Saunders has remastered pictures of the first tracks made by the LRV, the setup of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) and a photo of Irwin saluting the American flag.
