NGC 7193. While this is another of RNGC's "non-existent" clusters, it is clearly seen on DSS and the POSS1 prints about 30 seconds preceding JH's position (he cautioned that many of the positions from early sweeps -- this is from Sweep 14 -- are unreliable). The core is a band of 11 stars, 6 arcmin by 1 arcmin, stretching from the northwest to the southeast. There are other stars scattered around it, primarily to the south and west.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a nonexistent object. Their coded description reads NO CL S.
12-inch f/10 SCT (76x, 218x, 346x)
Lovely handful of stars, which is outstanding against the background. Very much in an elongated shape NW-SE. The stars display a stringy run after one another. The SE is daintier.
