Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 778 = NGC 4198. Swift's position is exactly 5 minutes of time too large. Otherwise, his observation matches N4198 very well. Curiously, however, he notes that the star to the north is 13th magnitude, while the star south of the galaxy is the brighter of the two. Did he confuse his directions as well as the RA? I'd have thought that an observer would call special attention to the brighter of a pair of stars rather than the fainter.
