I came across this link during a recent Google search. It's the Image atlas from the Apollo 16 mission. Down the bottom of the list, Magazine OO, lists 83 Ultraviolet images. I guess these were taken using the Zeiss UV Sonnar 105mm lens.

I wonder what they mean by "UV film"? All silver halide emulsions are sensitive to UV!

Kodak IIa-O
seems to be sensitive between 300nm and 500nm with max around 400nm (4000A)
