I have found (on Aug. 17th 1884) an excessively faint nebula in the field with and south of the small bright planetary nebula No. 4510 of Herschel's Gen. Cat. – From a mean of two equatorial pointings I make its place [1884.0]
α = 19h 38m 25s
δ = −15° 2′ 50′′
It is some 2′ diameter, and is very diffuse and even in its light. With 6 inch Equatoreal it is very difficult to see, with 5 inch and a power of 30± (field about 1¼°) it is quite distinct. This should be borne in mind in looking for it.
