Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3404 is probably a defect on Schwassmann's original plate. There is no trace of a "cB, cS, li * 10-11, surrounded by much nebulosity" galaxy in the area. There are also no galaxies at reasonable digit errors from Schwassmann's published position. The only possibility is NGC 4464, but that is not exactly one degree north, and Schwassmann has an entry for it, in any case.
