NGC 7095. The GC and NGC NPD's are wrong, probably copied by mistake from the NPD for NGC 7097. JH's CGH observations have the correct NPD. I incorrectly equated NGC 7095 and 7097 in the SGC, and ESO's two suggested identifications are also of course wrong. The correct object is ESO 027-G001 at 21 45 48, -81 45.9; this is PGC 67546 which is also in RC3. The NGC number should be attached to this object.
Discovered by Sir John Herschel at the Cape of Good Hope with an 18-inch f/13 speculum telescope. He recorded it as "F, pL, R, vgvlbM, 50 arcseconds." On a second occassion he called it "F, pL, vglbM; has a star 13m on it."

NGC 7095 is not ESO 287-41
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads BM.
