Observing Notes

E.E. Barnard
25cm f/5 Astrograph

Large, diam. 1°, bright nebula in N part. This is a large dark spot, extended north and south, 62' in its largest diameter. In its upper part is the star BD+69°1231 (8m.8) which is nebulous. This is apparently a large dark nebula, the brighter part of which forms the star +69°1231. In Monthly Notices, 69 (December), 1908, Dr. Max Wolf gives a photograph of the nebula, stating that the object was discovered by Dr. Kopff at Heidelberg on October 12, 1908. It is conspicuous on a photograph of mine made with the Willard lens at the Lick Observatory, September 24, 1895, with 5h 0m exposure. It is also shown on a photograph of mine made with the Bruce telescope, July 20, 1904, with an exposure of 3h 1m. By inadvertence reference to this object was omitted in Lick Observatory Publications, 11, where it is cut out by the matting in Plate 83."
