Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3132 = IC 3131. Schwassmann's two positions are only ten arcseconds apart, not much larger than his standard deviation. Since he found the galaxy in two separate zones, it seems likely that he simply did not make the connection between the two listings, even though they ended up adjacent to each other in his table.
