NGC 7093. JH does not tell us much about this cluster: "The chief star (9m) in a cluster of the 8th class. The double * No. 1660 of my fourth catalogue belongs to this cluster." The cluster is indeed little compressed and scattered, and is apparently centered about 2 arcmin south of JH's accurate position for the star. Visual confirmation would be desireable.
The SAC database comments: "LING: 12in, 23 stars 10' dia many faint"
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NOCL S.
