Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 2677 is, by Wolf's note ("in L E 290 deg neby"), a star with a fainter compact galaxy just to the northwest. His position, however, falls closely on the star, and the galaxy is too faint to have registered on his plate (the print shows only the star). However, the corona of the star may have been enhanced by the galaxy, giving rise to the appearance of the "little extended [in] 290 deg neby".
