Previously, I had written:IC 3792 is two faint stars, probably with a defect involved, too. Schwassmann's position is about 20 arcsec to the south. There is an extremely faint galaxy in the area, too, but it would not have appeared on the plate from the 6-inch refractor that Schwassmann was using.
Looking more closely at the field during my May 2015 review, I'm not so sure about this. There is a group of about half a dozen faint objects here; the two brightest are indeed stars, but the brighter galaxy is pretty close in apparent magnitude to the stars.
Given that Schwassmann's position is well off the center of this group of objects, I am no longer sure that his object is directly involved with what we now see on the sky. His description merely reads "vF, S" so is little help.
All this has led me to include positions for the galaxies, and question marks on everything here -- aside from Schwassmann's original position, of course.― IC Notes by Harold Corwin
