Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3577 is a defect on Schwassmann's plate. We can be sure of this because there is nothing exactly at his position. But just to the northeast is a "* 12.8" which Schwassmann calls "* 207a" in his list (IC 3577 is itself number 207 of his list). Schwassmann's description of the IC object reads "vF, pS or cS, dif, cont[ains] * 207a".

There is another fainter star on to the northeast that may also have been involved in Schwassmann's "nebulosity".
