- Frame 55, made by Zond 8, shows De Vries rightward of the frame's central cross (De Vries is the crater with the pronounced central peak and the small bowl-shaped craterlet at the northern part of its rim). NB. The image here has to be turned 90 degrees clockwise to orientate it to North (at top) and East (at right).
- Frame AS8-18-2836, made during the mission of Apollo 8, shows a southward-looking oblique view at De Vries and its pronounced central peak. Scan by David Woods and Frank O'Brien (Apollo 8 Flight Journal).
