IC 805 = NGC 4611. Neither Swift nor Dreyer recognized the identity even though Swift's position is only 9 seconds west and 0.5 arcmin north of Stephan's. Perhaps the different notes about neighboring stars (Stephan: "... between two very faint stars." Swift: "... two pB stars north and north-following." Both notes are correct, by the way.) misled both astronomers. Stephan also notes that the galaxy is "... a little extended southeast-northwest," while Swift simply has "round."
In any event, the two numbers apply to the same galaxy.
