Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3352 may be a defect on Schwassmann's plate. There is nothing at his position. NGC 4411B is almost straight north -- but by 7 arcmin, 37 arcsec. Unless this is a unit (or ten, or 100) in Schwassmann's measuring system, I don't think Bigourdan's object is the one Schwassmann measured. Similarly, there is a small, faint galaxy 6.0 sec west, and 1 arcmin 5 arcsec south. I think this has a better chance of being the correct object, but I'm still not betting on it.

We obviously need to check the plate, if it still exists (which, we are told, does not).
