Barnard, E.E. (1890) A.N. 2995.
In AN 2756 I gave a description and position of this nebula with the 6-inch Cooke equiatorial of the Vanderbilt Univ.Obs. I called attention to the fact that both description and position in the General Catalogue were erroneous. ... The description of the nebula with the 12 inch is "R, gmbM with a decided N.; it is about 0.75' or 1' in diameter and of the 10th mag. In all probability a glboaulr clsuter. There is no nebula bright or faint in the pos. assigned to GC 4036. ... The position NGC 5834 is therefore to be stricken out, and that of NGC 5824 is to stand with 4036 inserted in the column G.C. and 1900 in the column J.H.
(Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NF S.
The ESO-Upp catalog identifies NGC 5824 (ESO 150054-3252.5 387-SC 1) with NGC 5834.
