About two years ago, I found with 5 inch. refractor, a moderate size nebula involved in the extreme p. end of the Great Nebula of Andromeda. I have now confirmed the observation with the 6 inch Cook Equatorial and as I can find no record of such nebula I suppose it is new. The nebula is faint but quite distinct and definite in outline. Its place is
α = 0h 34m 16s
δ = +40° 6′ 0′′
The nebula lies just south of a Triangle of three small stars. It is very slightly brighter in the middle.
