Warning: the LPI's red-labeled scan of Lunar Orbiter 1's frame 028-M shows Congeve instead of Congreve. - DannyCaes Sep 25, 2011
Congreve's floor was captured on Apollo 11's orbital Hasselblad photographs AS11-43-6377 and 6379. Research: David Woods and colleagues (APOLLO 11 FLIGHT JOURNAL).

Congreve lies some 100 km west from the main outer ring of the Korolev Basin -- a feature created during the Nectarian period (~ 3.92 to 3.85 bn years) like that of the crater itself. Congreve isn't quite as circular as one would expect; the eastern sector of the crater having been leveled somewhat by several impacts of note, while the western sector, through minor impacts, has left the rim intact and relatively sharp. Some of these impacts craters may, in fact, be secondaries from the Orientale Basin -- a basin of the Imbrium period (~ 3.85 to 3.15 bn years), which lies some 2500 km away south-east of Congreve.
