    The original finding aid described this as: Description: Sequence of photos (083-111)depicting the deployment of the Syncom IV (LEASAT-2) satellite by the STS-41D crew. From the extreme aft portion of Discovery's payload bay the Syncom IV satellite begins to separate, like a frisbee, from the shuttle orbiter. Other payloads and/or their support hardware in the payload bay (forground to aft) are the OAST-1 package and the protective shield for the now vacated SDS-4 satellite. The Canadian-built remote manipulator system (RMS) arm rests at the right. The Earth's horizon can be seen at the top of the frame.
