099:36:17 Collins (onboard): Now, [garble] might check me on this, I - it's - I'm ready to go any time you're ready.

099:36:24 Aldrin (onboard): Roger. We'll be ready to go in just a minute.

099:37:46 Aldrin (onboard): Okay, I'm starting my 5-minute rate - right now.

Separation time should be at 100 hours, 12 minutes per the flight plan. AOS (rev.13) should be at 100 hours, 16 minutes.

099:40:00 Collins (onboard): As a matter of interest, I appear to be drifting in my roll. I'm holding my pitch and yaw pretty constant, and I'm staying a good 15 degrees late in the program.

099:40:15 Aldrin (onboard): Roger.

099:40:17 Collins (onboard): Looks like a [garble].

099:40:31 Collins (onboard): Halfway through it, it looks like I have [garble] degrees in roll is about all.

099:40:39 Aldrin (onboard): Yes, those look like good ones right now.

... The crew contemplates separation a bit ahead of schedule and ahead of the flight plan ...

099:41:22 Aldrin (onboard): Mike, what's your Sep time?

099:41:26 Collins (onboard): A few minutes.

099:41:49 Collins (onboard): GET of the separation burn is 100:39:50 even.

099:42:01 Collins (onboard): I haven't gotten the updates for undocking time; I'm still carrying 100 hours 15 minutes, I guess, [garble].

099:42:23 Collins (onboard): I'm surprised they didn't update it by 3 or 4 minutes to, you know, make that Delta-V be in the same position that they wanted.

099:42:33 Aldrin (onboard): Yes, I agree.

099:42:38 Collins (onboard): So we're about 3 minutes ahead of the printed Flight Plan. It might be wise to try to Sep about 3 minutes early, and we can give them a GET of Sep that's precise, whenever they want it.

... Mike ribs Neil about his new nickname ...

099:43:06 Collins (onboard): I have 5 minutes and 15 seconds since we started. Attitude is holding very well.

099:43:21 Aldrin (onboard): Roger, Mike. Just hold it a little bit longer.

099:43:25 Collins (onboard): No sweat, I can hold it all day. Take your sweet time. How's the Czar over there? He's so quiet.

099:43:45 Armstrong (onboard): Just hanging on - and punching.

099:43:49 Collins (onboard): I didn't know [garble] radio. [Garble] I've ever seen a radio. All I can say is, "Beware the revolution."

... more advice, or is it ribbing? ...

099:46:21 Collins (onboard): You cats take it easy on the lunar surface. If I hear you huffing and puffing, I'm going to start bitching at you.

099:46:28 Aldrin (onboard): Okay, Mike.

099:46:37 Armstrong (onboard): I just pressurized the DPS. [Garble] looks okay, Mike.

099:46:40 Collins (onboard): Roger that.

... more prework for the undock ...

099:49:19 Aldrin (onboard): Hey, Mike, can you see where our radar's pointing now?

099:49:29 Collins (onboard): Well, it looks like it's pointed right at my head - that's hard south. So's your radio beacon.

099:49:34 Aldrin (onboard): Okay. It should really - it should be pointing from the - you know, our forward axis? It should be pointing up at 40 degrees and, you know -

099:49:48 Collins (onboard): Okay. We've wandered back over the bellyband now - let me assure that AGS Cal.

099:49:54 Aldrin (onboard): [Garble.]

099:50:19 Collins (onboard): How'd the AGS Cal work out?

099:50:23 Aldrin (onboard): Oh, it danced around a little bit, but seemed to go right back to the original numbers.

099:50:33 Collins (onboard): Okay. I'm going to start a maneuver now to our undocking attitude.

099:51:21 Collins (onboard): Now the undock attitude and the SEP attitude ought to be the same, so I'm going to go to what they gave me for the updated separation burn attitude. That's just about 7 degrees off, but it's in your Flight Plan for the undock attitude.

099:51:38 Aldrin (onboard): Okay.

099:53:12 Collins (onboard): When your rendezvous radar self-test is complete, let me know and I'll check out my transponder.

099:53:30 Aldrin (onboard): Excuse me, Mike, what did you say?

099:53:33 Collins (onboard): I say, when your rendezvous radar self-test is complete, let me know and I'll check out my transponder.

099:53:38 Aldrin (onboard): Yes, we're through with that now.

099:53:41 Collins (onboard): Thank you. I'm maneuvering the [garble].

099:58:44 Collins (onboard): That transponder checked out. I hope they've got a nice, big, strong [garble] for you.

099:58:49 Aldrin (onboard): Very good.

099:59:56 Aldrin (onboard): Hey, Mike, what would you recommend as a good setting on the 16 millimeter?

100:00:02 Collins (onboard): Well, what they recommend for you is f:8 at 1/250th and put it not on infinity, but on 7 feet, which covers all the way from infinity down to a very short distance to keep it in focus, and 6 frames per second, I guess.

100:00:25 Aldrin (onboard): Yes, what you say, f:8 at 1/250th?

100:00:28 Collins (onboard): Yes, f:8 at l/250th. And after you get it all set up, check that f-stop again because it slides and slips off with very little twist.

100:03:53 Collins (onboard): How about using, as an undocking time, 100 hours and 12 minutes? That suit your fancy?

100:03:59 Armstrong (onboard): That'll be fine.

100:04:05 Collins (onboard): Okay.

100:04:11 Armstrong (onboard): What have you got for AOS, Mike?

100:04:14 Collins (onboard): I have 100 hours and 16 minutes.

100:04:20 Armstrong (onboard): Okay.

... And we have UNDOCK!! ...

ATTACHMENT: Vid of undock from CM

100:10:44 Collins (onboard): We got just about a minute to go. You guys all set?

100:10:48 Armstrong (onboard): Yes, I think we're about ready.

100:11:47 Armstrong (onboard): We're all set when you are, Mike.

100:11:51 Collins (onboard): 15 seconds.

100:12:03 Collins (onboard): Okay, there you go. Beautiful!

100:12:06 Armstrong (onboard): [Garble.]

100:12:10 Aldrin (onboard): Looks like a good Sep.

100:12:19 Collins (onboard): Looks good to me.

100:12:59 Armstrong (onboard): Okay. I've killed my rate, Mike, so you drift out to the distance you like and then stop your rate.

100:13:13 Armstrong (onboard): Starting my yaw.

100:13:30 Armstrong (onboard): There's sure a better visual in the simulator.

100:13:38 Collins (onboard): Okay. I picked up a little roll. I'm going to get rid of it.

PAO: This is Apollo Control at 100 hours, 14 minutes. We're now less than 2 minutes from reacquiring the spacecraft on the thirteenth revolution. When next we hear from them, the Lunar Module should be undocked from the Command and Service Module. We're presently about 25 minutes away from the separation burn which will be performed by Mike Collins in the Command Module to give the LM and the CSM a separation distance at the Descent Orbit Insertion maneuver of about 2 miles. We have some times on the upcoming events. The separation maneuver is scheduled to occur at a Ground Elapsed Time of 100 hours, 39 minutes, 50 seconds; the Descent Orbit Insertion maneuver, which will be performed on the backside of the Moon, set for 101 hours, 36 minutes, 14 seconds; and the beginning of the powered descent at 102 hours, 33 minutes, 4 seconds. We're now 55 seconds from reacquiring Apollo 11 on the thirteenth revolution. During this revolution we will be doing the separation maneuver. We'll also be giving the crew on the Lunar - on the Lunar Module a Go/No-Go for the Descent Orbit Insertion maneuver. We'll stand by now to reacquire the spacecraft.

100:14:22 Armstrong (onboard): Okay with you if I start my pitch, or you think you're not far enough away yet, Mike?

100:14:31 Collins (onboard): I'd prefer you stand by just a couple of seconds, Neil.

100:14:34 Armstrong (onboard): Okay. I'll wait for when you're ready - when you think you've got your rates killed perfectly.

100:14:39 Collins (onboard): Okay. I'm still holding [garble].

100:14:41 Armstrong (onboard): [Garble.]

100:15:26 Collins (onboard): Okay, looks pretty good to me now.

100:15:30 Armstrong (onboard): Okay.

PAO: We have confirmation of Acquisition Of Signal. We'll stand by for a call to the crew.

... The EAGLE HAS WINGS ...

100:16:34 Collins (onboard): Just like in the simulator, you're drifting off to one side and down below a little bit.

100:16:39 Armstrong (onboard): Yes.

100:17:06 Duke: Hello, Eagle. Houston. We're standing by. Over. [No answer.]

100:17:06 Collins (onboard): The gear are looking good. I've seen three of them.

100:17:11 Armstrong (onboard): The MESA is not down, right?

100:17:14 Collins (onboard): Say again.

100:17:15 Armstrong (onboard): The MESA's still up?

100:17:19 Collins (onboard): Yes.

100:17:20 Armstrong (onboard): Good.

100:17:21 Unknown speaker (may be a previous utterance): [Garble].

100:17:49 Collins (onboard): Now, you're looking good.

100:17:51 Duke: Eagle, Houston. We - Houston. We see you on the steerable. Over. [Pause.]

100:18:01 Armstrong: Roger. Eagle's undocked.

100:18:03 Duke: Roger. How does it look, Neil?

100:18:04 Armstrong: The Eagle has wings.

100:18:06 Duke: Rog.
