It was the first time the duo had been caught in the same frame.

Erm... That picture was taken on 1977-09-18. The picture dubbed 'Earthrise' (https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/imagegallery/image_feature_1249.html) certainly shows the Moon and Earth in the same frame and was taken on 1968-12-24. It doesn't show the whole Moon - but then the Voyager photo only shows part of the Earth and Moon too. Anyway, they're both excellent pictures.
