One of the louvred shades carried in the space shuttle to minimize light leaking between the flight deck and mid-deck during photography inside the shuttle. Velcro is used to attach the shade to the mid-deck ceiling around the access connecting the decks. Photography of the crew's activities is accomplished with three cameras: a 16-mm motion-picture camera, and 35-mm and 70-mm cameras.
