S49-211-002 - STS-049 - Three Mission Specialist EVA manual INTELSAT capture.
The original finding aid described this as:
Description: Three mission specialist EVA INTELSAT manual capture. Photos show all three EVA mission specialists, Rick Hieb - no red stripe, standing on the payload bay starboard bulkhead mounted foot restraint, Pierre Thuot (on the backside of the satellite) - solid red stripe, standing on the RMS mounted foot restraint and Tom Akers - diagonal red stripes, (not readily visible in these views) standing on the ASEM mounted foot restraint in the middle of the payload bay. All three EVA members are arranged in a circle and firmly grasping the lower skirt of the satellite. Image taken in darkness but the payload bay lights and the EMU suit lights provided adequate light for detailed photos of the INTELSAT capture bar being manipulated and attached to the lower skirt.
