Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

Earlier I wrote "IC 4151 is actually an interacting pair of galaxies..." DSS2 and SDSS show the system to be an interacting triplet, not just a pair. All are merged into one image on a print of the original Bruce 16-inch refractor plate which Wolf examined. Presumeably, they are also merged on the orginal plate.
