Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 1462 is a star. Bigourdan misidentified his comparison star as BD +07 4995 -- it is actually BD +07 4955. Once that change is made, his single measurement reduces to a position that is within an arcsec of the position measured on DSS for the star, so there is no question about the identification.

Bigourdan himself suggested that the object might be nothing more than a star. The DSS image is slightly elongated, while other star images in the field are more nearly round. It's possible that this is in fact a very close double.

The object is in fact a double star. The two components are clearly shown in the SDSS and Pan-STARRS1 images; and the individual positions are available there as well as in Gaia DR2. I have adopted the Gaia positions.
