That 2 hours and 40 minutes of television probably will have the poorest technical quality of the moon, but the astronaut cautioned that the picture probably won't be top quality. Forty minutes after his first step on the moon Armstrong will move the television camera from the side of the moon land- er, put it on a tripod and set it up about 30 feet away.
