Historical Research Notes / Correction for NGC 7772
*NGC 7772 is an asterism of 7 stars, the southern-most brighter than the 
others.  Still, it is a striking object, well isolated, and would probably
stand out quite well at the eyepiece. - Dr. Harold G. Corwin, Jr.
The CDS lists NGC 7772 as a "Cluster of Stars".
