Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 426, found by Williamina Fleming on a Harvard plate, has four nearby patches of nebulosity associated with it. One is attached to the southeast; the others are 7 to 10 arcminutes away in the same direction. All are more easily visible on the DSS blue plates than on the red plates. See IC 434 for more.
