Lindsay (Dollond C) at center of the image (with several odd white blemishes from the photographic unit aboard Lunar Orbiter IV) and larger Barcroft (Dollond B) southeast of it. Barcroft was one of the discontinued names from H.P.Wilkins and P.Moore (see their book The Moon).

  • Several "forgotten" orbital photographs of Lindsay (Dollond C) are online in Apollo 16's REV 37 (oblique northward looking Fairchild camera frames). One of those photographs, AS16-M-1397, shows Lindsay slightly above and to the left of the frame's centre. An almost identical looking frame is AS16-M-0833, from REV 27.

Ruins of a very ancient large crater west of Lindsay

  • West of Lindsay there seems to be a circle-shaped arrangement of elevations that looks more-or-less like the ruins of a large crater the size of Hipparchus. This circle-shaped tendency is depicted on SLC map C5 (System of Lunar Craters, 1966). How much of this ancient crater could be observed during low-sun circumstances? - DannyCaes Jan 21, 2017


  • Eric Mervyn Lindsay (January 26, 1907–July 27, 1974) was an Irish astronomer. He is more noted for his political influence in favor of astronomy than for important astronomical discoveries. For example, he was responsible for persuading the Irish government and Harvard University to found a telescope at Boyden Station in South Africa for the purpose of charting the southern skies. Dr. Lindsay was also instrumental in the founding of Armagh Planetarium.

  • The LPI's red labeled scan of frame LOIV-089-h3 shows the name Lindsay as Lindsey.- DannyCaes Jul 1, 2012
