Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 4056 has a star superposed 10 arcsec south of the nucleus. The galaxy and the star are merged into one image on the print of the original Bruce 16-inch refractor plate which Wolf examined. Presumeably, they are also merged on the orginal plate, accounting for Wolf's description "exc" -- eccentric.
