The small crater Pupin was also captured on two of Apollo 15's orbital ITEK-panoramic frames:
AS15-P-10224 (Revolution 72, Forward Facing Camera).
AS15-P-10229 (Revolution 72, Aft Facing Camera).
On both of Apollo 15's ITEK-frames, Pupin is located about "halfway" (scroll rightward, to the centre).

Pupin is also noticeable on two of Apollo 17's ITEK-frames:
AS17-P-3049 (Revolution 74, Forward Facing Camera).
AS17-P-3054 (Revolution 74, Aft Facing Camera).
On both of Apollo 17's ITEK-frames, Pupin is located a little bit "beyond" the centre (rightward of centre).
