IC 1822 is a star. Bigourdan saw this only one night in December of 1894, and called it "Pretty much a stellar object, maybe a little nebulous." He did not measure it, but only estimated its position with respect to BD -09 486. Unfortunately, his big table has a misprint for the sign of the RA offset -- it should be "-" and not "+". The positions in his CR list and in the second IC are correct, so the sign problem is either a typo, or he caught his error before he published the position.
