Abstracts regarding this panorama from The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal:

AS14-66-9294 (OF300) Al has move to the 12 o'clock position, due west of the ladder, to take a third pan. Down-sun.

AS14-66-9301 (OF300)
Ed is still doing a TV pan. Note the ridge behind him, still partially in shadow. Cone Crater is on a portion of this ridge that is off the picture to the right, virtually up-Sun (east) of the landing site.

AS14-66-9302 (OF300)
114:57:20 Frame from Al's 12 o'clock pan showing Ed doing a TV pan and, in the distance, considerable detail of the Cone Crater ridge. We can see Ed's footprints leading out to the TV site. As is usual for soil disturbances near the LM, the soil along Ed's track is darkened.

AS14-66-9303 (OF300)
Rightward of 9302, showing Ed, the U.S. flag, the S-Band antenna.

AS14-66-9304 (OF300)
Up-Sun, but without a great deal of glare, perhaps because part of the LM shadow may be falling on Al's camera lens. Without the sun glare, we can see some detail on the Cone Crater ridge. Flag, S-Band antenna, ladder, the LRRR in the west footpad. We can also see the MESA well enough to determine that, as per checklist, the MET has not been deployed and is still folded up on the MESA.

AS14-66-9305 (OF300)
114:57:20 Similar to 9304. Up-Sun from Al's 12 o'clock pan taken near the LM at the start of EVA-1. There is relatively little glare, perhaps because part of the LM shadow may be falling on Al's camera lens. Without the Sun glare, we can see some detail on the Cone-Crater ridge. Flag, S-Band antenna, ladder, the LRRR in the west footpad. We can also see the MESA well enough to determine that, as per checklist, the MET has not been deployed and is still folded up on the MESA.

AS14-66-9306 (OF300)
114:57:20 Rightward of 9305, centered just to the right of the hatch. The sun is mostly obscured by the LM, but there is enough glare to obscure most of the detail in the scene. Note the TV cable emerging from the left side of the MESA.

AS14-66-9308 (OF300) ( 125k or 1004k )
Rightward of 9307, showing the SWC and Old Nameless.
AS14-66-9309 (OF300) ( 152k or 1170k )
Rightward of 9308, centered on the SWC.
AS14-66-9310 (OF300) ( 154k or 1180k )
Rightward of 9309, showing the ridge to the south of the LM.

AS14-66-9316 (OF300) ( 66k or 799k )
114:59:49 Down-Sun. The last frame in Al's 12 o'clock pan.
