NGC 2932 is a patch of the Milky Way about 1 degree across, centered near JH's
approximate position (he gives it only to a full minute of time and a full
minute of arc). In his description, he notes that it is "... a degree or
degree and half in diameter, very rich in stars of all magnitudes from 8 m
downwards ..." This is just what we see on the IIIa-J plate today.
Southern object (not observed). Detached section of Milky Way.
