In principle the old Landsat TM (acquired from July 16, 1982 through
September 27, 1985) and old Landsat MSS (older than 2 year) are
available at reduced prices:

        MSS                             $ 200
        TM raw                          $ 300
        TM systematic corrected         $ 425
        TM precision corrected          $ 600

Inquires can be made to

        Customer Services
        EROS Data Center (EDC)
        Sioux Falls SD 57198
