Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

This galaxy has a pair of blue knots (or superposed stars?) just to the southeast of the bulge. Wolf mentions the star to the northeast, and -- rather curiously -- "a fainter 2' nf", referring to another galaxy. Why didn't he just include it in his list? We know why Dreyer did not include it in the IC -- no accurate position.
