Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3790 is a star exactly at Schwassmann's position. Even though he describes it as "eF, vS, ??" -- the "??" indicating considerable doubt about the nebulous character of the object -- there is no doubt about the identity. The position is too close to a star very similar to others that Schwassmann, working at the limit of his plates, mistook for faint nebulae.
