NGC 7832 = IC 5386. This one is another blunder by Swift (originally), but also by Howe and Dreyer who evidently did not check the NGC. Howe's accurate position is only three seconds of time off the NGC position, and Swift's description "pB, pS, vE" should have caught everyone's eyes.
But it didn't, so the galaxy now has an IC number as well as an NGC entry.

Discovered in 1784 by William Herschel with an 18.7-inch f/13 speculum telescope. He called it "vF, vS."
Observed by Sir John Herschel at the Cape of Good Hope with an 18-inch f/13 speculum telescope. He recorded it as "F, R, first vg, then psbM, has 2 stars 9m S.f."
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a 13.5 mag galaxy. Their coded description reads EL,BM,.
