Would you like to record the video?

How's this for cool old reel-to-reel?

Whoops, right. In th auction he talks about this model being owned installed on Apollo 11 by NASA during the Moon landings.

"Apollo 11 NASA installed a VR-660 VTR Recorder"

Interesting! I couldn’t believe they’d install something so heavy in the LM not to mention that they simply broadcast from the moon (no recording) so I had to look it up.... from Wikipedia:

“ For Apollo 11, NASA installed a VR-660 as part of a slow-scan video system for recording at Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station in Australia. The slow-scan television video transmitted from Apollo 11 had a resolution of 250 TV lines at 10 frames per second, which was then converted using equipment at the tracking station to standard 525-line 30-frame-per-second NTSC video, and then recorded to the VR-660. “
