Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 4102 is a galaxy and a superposed star on the southeastern side. My earlier conjecture that there may be another star or galaxy between them is not borne out by DSS2 or SDSS. Both of the images are merged into just a single blob on the print of Wolf's original Bruce 16-inch refractor plate. Presumeably, they are also merged on the orginal plate, accounting for Wolf's description "neb *."
