This view from the Apollo 15 command module includes the Hadley Rille (lower center), Apennine Mountains (lower right), Caucasus Mountains (upper right), Aristillus Crater (top left), and Autolycus Crater (just below Aristillus). The Apollo 15 lunar-module touchdown point is on the east side of the "chicken beak" in the Hadley Rille.
