Although there seems to be nothing for Sinus Lunicus in the LPI's database of orbital Apollo photographs, this region was frequently photographed on northward looking magazine REV 35 made by Apollo 15's Fairchild mapping-metric camera. Perhaps the best frame of REV 35 is AS15-M-1540 which shows Sinus Lunicus at centre of the triangle made by the large craters Archimedes, Aristillus, and Autolycus.
