Al's C-Prime pan (assembly by Dave Byrne) is AS14-64- 9098 to 9122.

David Harland has assembled the portion showing the view to the west and around to the north.

Saddle Rock is just in from the right edge of 9099, just above the center line, as indicated in a detail.

Frame 9100 is nearly centered on Saddle Rock.

In the down-Sun direction, the drop off at the edge of 'east ridge' is readily apparent.

The rim of Cone Crater is beyond the boulders to the right of center in 9101. Erwin D'Hoore has produced a red-blue anaglyph from 9100 and 9101; D'Hoore and Jim Scotti from 9101 and 2; and Scotti from 9102 and 3.

Frame 9116 shows Old Nameless, the large crater in the distance just above the local horizon and right of center. Note the fragment-rich crater in the foreground that has been punched into the local Cone Crater ejecta.

Frame 9117 shows the east wall of the fragment-rich crater.

Frame 9118 shows the central portions of the fragment-rich crater.

Frame 9120 shows Ed at the front of the MET with his back to us. He is getting ready to collect samples and has a cup-shaped, individual sample bag in his right hand and his tongs attached at his waist by his yo-yo. He has his top sunshield raised. The LM is visible just to the right of the sunshield tab. The close-up stereo camera is hanging on the lefthand side of the MET. The west wall of the fragment-rich crater is on the left beyond Ed.

Erik van Meijgaarden has created a mini-pan of Ed at the MET using AS14-64-9117 to 9120. Frame 9121 is an excellent photo of the front of the MET and of various pieces of equipment.

Mitchell - "That's the white boulder (Saddle Rock) and, had we passed there, another 30 feet, that would have been the south edge of the rim. And when we come around here on this picture (9103), from C-Prime, there's the edge of the boulder field. So the rim's right over there (at the left side of 9103)."
