NGC 7325 is a close double star north preceding a slightly fainter single star. There can be no question as to the identity: Schultz's accurate position pinpoints the object he was looking at, and Lord Rosse's observer's offsets (distance and position angle) land on exactly the same object. The RNGC is of course wrong (RNGC 7325 is a relatively bright star superimposed on a much fainter galaxy).
Faint double star.
Discovered by Schultz who called it "faint, very small, NGC 7331 following."
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads R,ALMSTEL,HISB.
