Although there seem to be no orbital Apollo photographs in the LPI's list of Monge, this crater WAS photographed during the mission of Apollo 16. It (Monge) is noticeable on several south-looking oblique Fairchild camera frames such as AS16-M-0677. In this frame, Monge is noticeable near the central part of the curved horizon.
