According to the LPI's Apollo Image Atlas there are very few Apollo photographs which show Innes (only two?).
Apollo 16's Fairchild-camera frame AS16-M-3000 (made during TEC, Trans Earth Coast) shows Innes near the lower part of the frame's right margin.

Additional Information

  • TSI = 25, CPI = 15, FI = 20; MI =60 Smith and Hartnell, 1973 (Updated by CAW)
  • Bright raycraterlet immediately east of Innes G (east-southeast of Innes itself). Looks like a white spot on page 94 of the Clementine atlas. The extreme close up images of this raycraterlet's interior (its inner slopes and chaotic floor) could be explored at LON: 123.13 / LAT: 26.78 in the LRO's ACT-REACT Quick Map.- DannyCaes Jul 8, 2011
