Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 4015 and IC 4016, an interacting pair of galaxies, together make up NGC 4893 (which see). The NGC position is off enough that Wolf misidentified a defect as the NGC object, and listed both IC objects as new nebulae. Both galaxies, and the defect, are marked on a print of the original Bruce 16-inch refractor plate which Wolf examined.
