||I imaged this field (and the ADS 6366 Group) around full moon. This
duo of galaxies (NGC 4572 to the west <right>) is close to the north pole, and I could image without
the moon interfering (other than brightening the sky). Unfortunately,
the winds (off-shore) appeared, and the seeing got much worse than when
I began the imaging run (03/03).

Historical Research Notes /
Correction for NGC 4572
NGC 4572 = CGCG 352-037 is a galaxy northwest of NGC 4589. It was seen by
both WH and JH, but Bigourdan's observation under "NGC 4572" actually refers
to a star a few arcmin southeast of the galaxy.
The galaxy has also been taken by some to be identical to IC 802 (which see).
But Bigourdan found that (also a star) the same night as his observation of
"NGC 4572", and his precise measurements of both show that they cannot be the
same. - Dr. Harold G. Corwin, Jr.
As with all corrections to the NGC and IC Catalogues, there is a certain margin
for error, even though the evidence supporting the correction may be strong and
compelling. It is with this in mind that we ask the user to use this information
as 'Most Probable', but never to assume the correction is 'Absolute'. All
published corrections are based on an exhaustive 'paper chase' of the historical
record back to the original discoverer's published notes/papers, and are
therefore based upon the historical accuracy (or inaccuracy) of those particular
notes/papers. In short, Caveat Emptor! - Robert E. Erdmann, Jr.
