Corwin's Notes

===== NGC 2925. JH's position refers to a double star southeast of the center of the cluster. But there is apparently a further +20 time-second error in his RA which puts his position nearly half a minute east of our modern ones.

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 2925 14" (4/3/16 - Coonabarabran, 142x and 184x): scattered cluster with 60+ stars mag 8.5 and fainter in a 10' region. The brightest stars roughly define the outline, including mag 8.5 HD 82812 at the west end. On the south side is HJ 4221, a 9.4/9.9 pair at 15" and three mag 9-10 stars are on the east side. Mag 7.7 HD 82737 lies 13' SW.
