Summary description: pB, S, lE, psmbM
NGC 3329 = NGC 3397. NGC 3329 was found by JH; his position is only an arcmin
off the galaxy. NGC 3397, on the other hand, was found by his father in sweep
1096 on 2 April 1801 -- all fifteen of the galaxies that WH found in that
sweep have very large, systematic errors in their positions. See NGC 3752 for
more of the story, as well as h 917 in the "notngc" files.
