- Cartan was also captured on Apollo 17's panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS17-P-2921 and AS17-P-2926 (on these two, Cartan's eastern half is visible a little bit to the right of the central parts of those frames)(look for a crater with small bright dot on its floor, not to be confused with Apollonius F a bit further to the right and immediately east of Daly!). Frames AS17-P-2923 and AS17-P-2928 show Cartan's western half (look for "half a crater", located a tiny little bit to the right of the central parts of both frames)(the complete crater further to the right is Daly).
