History and Accurate Positions for the NGC/IC Objects (Corwin 2004)

IC 1137 has a +30 second error in its IC RA, apparently one of the few errors made by Dreyer in compiling the catalogue. Swift's original paper (his 9th list) has an RA about 8 seconds preceding a galaxy that matches his brief description: "vF, S, R; 9 m * close np". In particular, the star is there. The object was not picked up again until 1983 when it made it into the IRAS lists (it is IRAS 15461+0844).
