dc.description.abstract This report summarizes the results of the Apollo 15 LRRR (300 Corner) Pointing Analysis. This analysis provides the parameter values for the array tilt angle and shadow mark angle, each of which are necessary to properly align the experiment on the lunar surface. These parameters are used to set the suncompass plate angle, the leveling leg stop and leg length and the suncompass shadow mark settings. Three landing sites were analyzed: the primary site, Hadley Rille and two potential alternate sites, Marius Hills and Tycho.
