Dec 2, 1830    No. 6 The Crescent, Bedford, England (map)
150mm f/17.6 refractor by Tully 1827

A coarse triple star, on the Crab's body; with an alignment similar to that of 118 P. VIII., before described. A 7, pale yellow; B 7½, dusky; C 6½, lucid white. This, though a wide object, forms a very fair scalene triangle, and is No. 571 of Sir James South's Catalogue of 1826, where it is thus registered:
    Pos. AB 157° 01'  Dist. 45".037|  Ep. 1825.13
AC 240° 58' 92".257|
[WDS AG 158° 45".70 2018 ]
[ AD 242° 92".10 2018 ]
A proper motion is detected in A, and it is not improbable that the three are physically connected, so as to partake in the same movement in space. These are the latest deductions:
    P....  RA -0".16  Dec. -0".01
B.... -0".08 +0".20
[Hipparcos -0".034617 -0".013601]
