Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 2121 may be the object that Swift intended as IC 408 (which see). Barnard's position for IC 408, obtained at Swift's request, is in an empty field. IC 2121 is at roughly the correct declination, but its right ascension is 1.9 minutes of time to the east.

Its description by Swift from his December 1897 observation is appropriate, but Swift's description for IC 408 only tantalizingly fits IC 2121.
