- Lunar Orbiter 1's Frame 029 shows Condon (left of photograph's centre), Webb (near lower left corner), Townley (near upper right corner), and bright Petit (south of Townley).
- Condon was captured on Apollo 10's frame AS10-31-4500. Can you see it?
- Condon was also captured on Apollo 17's panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS17-P-2915 - AS17-P-2920 (both of these frames show the eastern half of it, with bright raycraterlet on the northeastern part of Condon's rim), and AS17-P-2917 - AS17-P-2922 (both of these frames show Condon's western half). Note: in all of the LPI's scans of Apollo's ITEK-camera frames, north is always to the right!

The Bright Spot W.N.W. of Condon
A curious high-albedo spot which looks like a raycraterlet (with sharp-edged ejectablanket around it) is located slightly west-northwest of Condon and slightly east of the peninsula at the bay-shaped crater Webb P. According to page 124 (LAC 62) in the Clementine Atlas, the bright spot is located at 2°30' North/ 58°50' East.
A close up of this bright spot was captured on Apollo 17's panoramic ITEK-camera frames AS17-P-2921 and AS17-P-2926. Explore both frames and you shall meet the bright spot while scrolling to the right, its central pit is also visible (you can't miss the spot!).
