- AS17-150-22979 shows a Concentric Crater south-east of Geiger (near Geiger L). The Concentric Crater itself is noticeable near the frame's right margin. This CC is mentioned as "number 19" in C.A.Wood's list published in 1978.
- The above mentioned Concentric Crater is also noticeable a little bit above and near the centres of frames AS17-M-1114 and AS17-M-1396, and also at stereo-frames AS17-P-1951 / AS17-P-1956 (on these two stereo-frames one doesn't have to scroll toward the right, the CC is already visible without scrolling).
