Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

Wolf describes this as "pretty large" and "faint", adding "N meas." which I take to mean that he measured what he took to be the nucleus of the object. The galaxy, however, matches others that he has called "small" or "very small" and "very faint". So, I suspect that his image includes the star to the southwest. This is indeed how it appears on the print of his plate, so I've called this IC object a galaxy plus a star.
