Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

History and Accurate Positions for the NGC/IC Objects (Corwin 2004)

NGC 7441 is probably IC 1458. Even though Ormond Stone's position is well east of the galaxy -- as many of the Leander McCormick positions are -- there is a 10th magnitude star preceding the galaxy as in his description, and the galaxy itself also matches the description well. Stone marked the declination with a question mark, so it's not surprising to find that it is 30 arcmin off.

The galaxy usually taken as N7441, MCG -01-58-013, fits only Stone's position (and then only the declination is close), not the description. In particular, there is no 10th magnitude star preceding the galaxy; the nearest star of any consequence is 14th magnitude and 1.7 arcmin northeast. Still, because of the better positional coincidence, I've included the galaxy as a possibility for Stone's object.

Published comments

Sulentic & Tifft (1973)

The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a 15.5 mag galaxy. Their coded description reads STEL.
