  • Apollo 11's AS11-42-6299 shows a close up of Respighi. Note the "D"-shape of its floor, which is a good "leitmotiv" to recognize the typical "look" of Respighi on other orbital photographs. Warning: the coordinates mentioned in the LPI's caption (at this photograph) are totally wrong!- DannyCaes Aug 20, 2010
  • Lunar Orbiter 1's Frame 026 shows craters Respighi and Liouville (north of the dark mare-like region Schubert N), and Dubyago (near the top left corner of photograph). Note the concentric crater south of Liouville!
  • Respighi is also noticeable near the right margin of Apollo 16's orbital ITEK-panoramic frame AS16-P-5149 (Respighi is the pronounced crater with somewhat high-albedo inner slopes and dark flat floor).
  • See also Apollo 15's ITEK-panoramic frame AS15-P-9780 (scroll to the right, beyond the frame's centre).
