Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 1470 is an HII region exactly at its discovery position. It was found nearly simultaneously by Spitaler (20 March 1892), Pechule, and Barnard (both 21 March 1892) while they were observing Comet Dennison (1892 II). The nebula has been incorrectly called a planetary nebula, and the IC number has also been incorrectly assigned to a much larger, much lower surface brightness diffuse nebula nearby.

The position is a bit tricky to pin down; there seem to be hot spots within the nebula that the digital sky surveys are picking up. So, the position that I've chosen from the GSCA is something of a compromise.
