On the left side of the image, as shown in a detail, we see the empty Quad III Payload Pallet compartment where the UV camera was stowed. The thermal blanket that covered the compartment hangs down from the bottom. As indicated on page 194 of the Final Lunar Surface Procedures document, the LRV Aft Pallet was stowed to the left of the Payload Pallet.
