Observing Notes

E.E. Barnard
25cm f/5 Astrograph

Cometary, close W of BD-7°4852 (9.2 arcmin). This object begins very closely west of BD-7°4852 (9.2 arcmin). From this it gradually widens and curves north like a plume, with the convex side west, to a distance of about 18'. The south end is intensely black. The northern part is dark with four or five small stars in it (see ibid. pp. 7, 11, and Plate IV)."
