- Warning: one orbital Apollo photograph of Papaleksi is online as Papaleski, see Papaleski.
AS16-M-0455 is one of Apollo 16's oblique west looking Mapping-Metric Fairchild photographs which captured very bright reflected light in the triplet of high-albedo craterlets near and at the western part of Papaleksi's rim.

- Apollo 13's frame AS13-60-8649 shows a wonderful oblique look at Papaleksi during local sunset (centre of frame). Is that tiny illuminated dot at Papaleksi's interior its central peak?

- Nikolaj Dmitrievich Papaleksi (December 2, 1880 - 1947) was a Soviet physicist. He developed an interference method for the measurement of the distribution of radio waves on the surface. From 1930 Papaleksi worked especially in the field of radio tracking.
- Papaleksi was erroneously printed as PAPALESKI on LAC 67, page 135 in the REVISED AND UPDATED EDITION of the Clementine Atlas of the Moon, 2012, CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS.- DannyCaes Jan 10, 2013
