Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

Though we took this as a pair of galaxies in the past, the print of the original plate shows only the northeastern of the two. The other "object" on the print is a defect centered northwest of the brighter galaxy, not southwest as the fainter galaxy is actually situated on the sky. As with IC 2710 (which see).
