Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 2733 may possibly be the southern star of the wide double star that I listed in the position table many years ago. There is nothing at Wolf's position on the DSS, POSS1, or on the print of his original plate aside from plate grain. The star is the closest nebulous object on the print, and the companion star of the 14th magnitude that Wolf mentions is indeed just to the north. If the southern star is his intended object, its position is much further off than usual, so Wolf made some mistake in measuring or reducing it. Wolfgang has chosen another star nearby, but it has no "* 14 n".
