Detail of and into the commander's observation window. Some of the ceiling of the LM can be seen, including the overhead docking window (the bright rounded rectangle toward the right corner of the observation window).

I'm uncertain as to the heritage of the observation window: On manned lunar modules, the commander's window had a "landing point designator" a series of markings on the window (as shown on LM-9 at Kennedy Space Center) which were used in conjunction with the guidance computer to assist the commander in choosing the exact landing point. However, as LM-2 was configured for unmanned use, it may have lacked the LPD.
