IC 5132 and IC 5133 are two stars embedded in very faint nebulosity. Roberts's positions are 2-3 arcmin southwest of the stars, but his relative position between the two objects is good. Neither object is in the papers cited by Dreyer in the IC2 introduction, and I've not found them in another of Roberts's papers of which I have a copy. Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure that the two nebulous stars I've chosen are the correct ones.
