Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3163 may be the two stars that I've listed in the table, though they are pretty far from Schwassmann's position. Perhaps a defect is involved on the original plate, too. In any event, there are no galaxies nearby.

Ames was the first to suggest the two stars, and Carlson picked this up for her 1940 ApJ list.
