AS17-M-0597 This small area northeast of Dawes, on the border between Mare Serenitatis and Mare Tranquillitatis, is densely populated with minor feature names because it was plotted on two of NASA's high-resolution Topophotomaps. The upper group of Robert, Mary and Isis appears on 42C3/S1 and the lower group of Osiris, Catena Brigitte, Rima Marcello, Rima Reiko and Jerik is on 42C3/S2.

Catena Brigitte was also captured on Apollo 15's orbital panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS15-P-9560/9565 (eastern part), AS15-P-9562/9567 (western part).
The large elongated depression northwest of Catena Brigitte (something which is observable through common telescopes, and was depicted by Antonin Rukl on chart 24 of his atlas) doesn't seem to have received an official IAU-name. Rather strange.
Apollo 17's low-sun ITEK frames AS17-P-2317 and 2322 show much more detail than the above mentioned high-sun frames of Apollo 15.
