    How does one determine scale and location on Moon Mappers?

    I know you can search for the image name (like "M115008450LE") on this website: http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc/search
    However, it only gives you the location of the "strip" the Moon Mapper image is from (lat/long of the upper, center, and lower parts of the stripe), so the coordinates are rather course.
    I'd like to know how to find more exact coordinates for the center of a given Moon Mapper image -- we use this site for a lab in intro astronomy and it works great, but we'd really like the students to then map where on the moon they were looking, so if there is anyway to get more exact coordinates from the gallery or somewhere else that would be awesome!
