Archives gones wild! #2

Yesterday LPOD image pointed me towards the scientific images (and data) acquired during the Apollo missions. Sites such as the one from the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) are a nice additions to that (oh! so ever growing) Apollo's bookmarks, as you won't find just the touristics and engineering pictures taken by the Astronauts like on the Project Apollo Archive, but you will also find pictures from the mapping and panoramic cameras used in the later missions (Apollo 15,16,17), as well as some pictures taken during the umanned Apollo 4 and 6 missions. If a given picture is available from the Project Apollo Archive, it is likely that the quality of the image you will find there will be way better than what's availabe from LPI. For example, here's AS12-47-6869 (left from PAA, right from LPI):
