7542 Johnpond           Discovered 1953 Apr. 7 by K. Reinmuth at Heidelberg.
John Pond (1767-1836), sixth Astronomer Royal, is famous for the introduction of then-modern transit instruments at Greenwich Observatory and for publishing a high-precision star catalogue. Pond received the Copley Medal of the Royal Society. The name was suggested by L. D. Schmadel.
