- Because Crile's (Proclus F's) location is not very far away of the pronounced high-albedo crater Proclus, it should be very easy to detect it on the panoramic ITEK-camera frames made during Apollo 15 and Apollo 17.
Crile on ITEK frames:
- Crile was captured on Apollo 17's panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS17-P-2702 and AS17-P-2707. In both frames, Crile is the crater at centre of your screen (you don't have to scroll toward the frame's right margin).
- In Apollo 15's AS15-P-9509, it (Crile) was captured at the central part of the frame (scroll to the right).
- A southward oblique look at Crile is Apollo 15's AS15-P-9245 (Crile is the crater very near the upper left corner of the frame).
