- L.O.1 Frame 032 is a vertical view of Dorsum Cayeux in and near the "constellation" of the four craters Taruntius G' (Anville), Taruntius H, K, and P (in Mare Fecunditatis). Note the cluster of odd-shaped craterlets in the "constellation". Research Danny Caes.
- L.O.5 Frame 038 is an oblique view of the region between Dorsum Cayeux and the Messier-couple. Note the bright "Heiligenschein"! (Retro-Reflection). Research Danny Caes.
- AS11-37-5445 shows Apollo 11's CSM Columbia over Dorsum Cayeux (central) and the bowl-shaped craters Taruntius H (upper left), Taruntius G/ Anville (upper right), and the twins Taruntius K and P (lower left). Note the weird shaped triplet of craterlets behind the CSM. Research Danny Caes.
- AS11-40-5846 is another orbital view of the Dorsum Cayeux region (a little above and to the right of LM Eagles bell-shaped exhaust nozzles). Research Danny Caes.
- AS10-35-5204 shows the "constellation" of the four craters Taruntius G/ H /K / and P, and Dorsum Cayeux running through it. Note: one of the four nozzle clusters of Apollo 10's LM Snoopy is visible at the image's right margin. Research Danny Caes.
- Lucien Cayeux (March 16, 1864 - November 1, 1944) was a French sedimentary petrographer. He is noted for his study of sediments with the polarizing microscope, and was one of the pioneers in this field.
- Dorsum Cayeux runs through the four craters Taruntius G (Anville), Taruntius H, K, and P. These four craters are nicknamed The Constellation or The Constellation of Four by Danny Caes. The central part of The Constellation contains a weird shaped trio of craterlets which is an interesting target for webcam-imagers of the moon's surface. - DannyCaes Feb 24, 2008
- The name Cayeux should not be confused with Cailleux, which is a crater at the moon's Far Side!- DannyCaes Apr 26, 2009
