  Thank you Lew.
To help clear up the designations that I have used. ESO452sc11 is
ESO452-011. The designation
sc stands for star cluster. The original ESO B list gave these
designations to all objects. g=galaxy
sc=star cluster, pn=planetary nebulae, en=emision nebulae, snr=supernova
remenant. I have copies of the original
Astrophysical journal letters that published the list and so I follow
these designations.
As for E3 there is no other designation that I know of. I have a number
of other unusual object observations that
I will send when I can. A number of these will be ESO objects. I find
that by saying would anyonelike to look at
ESO bla bla or someother string of letters people tend to stay away from
my lader, as the observing site of Ilford
is owned by the Astronomical Society of NSW. A new moon weekend will
attract 25-30 people. It is located about
250km northwest of Sydney on the other side of the coastal mountain
ranges and has a fantastic DARK sky.
