Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

Though there is a galaxy at Schwassmann's position, it does not match his description ("eF, pL, li[ke a] li[ne] 145 deg, ?, alpha::, delta::". In particular, the galaxy is very small and round, so I suspect that there is a plate defect superposed on the original plate.
