Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3224 is almost certainly the dwarf irregular galaxy and the star just north near Frost's position. He says only "R, bM, magn. 14.5". Since he was working with a 24-inch Bruce plate, the two objects are almost surely merged on it. The galaxy has a group of three bright blue knots on its east end; the position I've given for the galaxy itself is somewhat west of the knots.
