Corwin's Notes

===== 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.

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 2932 Southern object (not observed). Detached section of Milky Way.
