- Warning: one orbital Apollo photograph of Papaleksi is online as Papaleski, see Papaleski.
AS16-M-0455 is one of Apollo 16's oblique west looking Mapping-Metric Fairchild photographs which captured very bright reflected light in the triplet of high-albedo craterlets near and at the western part of Papaleksi's rim.

- Apollo 13's frame AS13-60-8649 shows a wonderful oblique look at Papaleksi during local sunset (centre of frame). Is that tiny illuminated dot at Papaleksi's interior its central peak?
