Apollo 16 5 O'clock Pan 29x10 inch. Duke has added, "Had We Landed A Few Meters Back, One Of The Legs Of The LM would have Been In That Crater! Charlie Duke Apollo 16 LMP"
This pan was captured by Charlie Duke from the 5 O'clock postion relative to the LM. In our book Apollo: The Panoramas, Charlie describes this pan as follows: “The crater to the left of the LM was not seen during our landing approach due to the lunar dust being blown away by our descent engine. Had we landed a few meters back, one of the legs of the LM would have been in that crater causing a tilt to the rear instead of the level attitude we achieved. Had we been on a tilt it would have been very difficult, if not impossible, for me to offload the ALSEP from Quad 4.”
