NGC 7528 is one of the fainter of the NGC nebulae, having been found by A. A. Common using his 36-inch glass-mirrored reflector. Though he calls it simply "F, S", it is around V = 15.5 - 16. Similar nebulae were usually called "eF, eS" by other observers.
Fortunately, there are no other nebulae anywhere as bright in the area, so we can be fairly sure of the identity. Common's approximate position -- which he determined simply by reading his setting circles -- is about 20 seconds of time preceding the galaxy.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads STEL.
