Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 1700 = IC 107 (which see). Javelle claims in a footnote to his table that he also measured IC 107 (it could possibly be UGC 978, sometimes taken for IC 1699, which see). Unfortunately, he does not give that measurement, so we do not know for sure which object he took to be the one seen by Swift. However, the observations that he does give for IC 1700 point unmistakably to the brightest of three in the area, which is in fact the one that Swift picked up.
IC Notes by Harold Corwin

Harold Corwin

IC 107 = IC 1700 (which also see). This is the brightest of three galaxies near Swift's position. The position given by Swift -- 20 sec in error -- coincidentally falls near UGC 978, the faintest of the three. Swift, however, mentions the star 0.5 arcmin southwest, confirming the identification with the brightest. Javelle later took the brightest as a new discovery, so it received the second IC number.
