IC 1283 is a part of IC 1284. In AN 3111, Barnard gives the name (BD+19 4948) and correct position of the nebulous star that he found on one of his plates. He continues, "The nebulosity is very small and principally noticeable on the southern side of the star." This is an accurate description as far as it goes. Later, in AN 4239, he describes the entire area as having a "large bed of diffused nebulosity" stretching between IC 1284 and BD-20 5055 nearly a degree to the southwest.
The Palomar and Siding Spring survey plates show Barnard's nebulosity and large swaths of Milky Way stars throughout the entire area. See NGC 6589 and NGC 6590 for more discussion of Barnard's and Swift's observations here.
