  • The 6" may refer to the camera's focal length in inches.
  • Next is "17,150 ASL" which is 17,150 feet Above Sea Level.
  • Following is "152.52" which refers to the camera's focal length in millimeters, which equals 6 inches.
  • The "W1307" may refer to the reel, but that is unconfirmed.
  • "8 SEP 69" is the date the photo was taken.
