Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3211 = "NGC 4307A". There is nothing wrong with the IC identification -- the galaxy is just where Schwassmann puts it. The NGC number comes from RNGC and is based on Holmberg's list of double and multiple galaxies where it is number 380b. NGC 4307 is Holmberg 380a. This is another reason why I don't like suffixes.
