NGC 7105 is one of the Leander-McCormick nebulae found by Leavenworth; its nominal position is particularly bad. Fortunately, Leavenworth left a sketch so that we can positively identify the nebula with MCG -02-55-001, about 25 arcmin southeast of the nominal position.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NF S.
Steve Coe, using a 13" f/5.6, notes: "Faint, small, elongated 3x1 in PA 135. It is somewhat brigther in the middle and there are 7 stars involved in a grainy glow at 165X."
