It is about 25 degrees above the eastern horizon right now.I will double check the location of it then see what I can dig up on it. This has me curious now as to what it is. Whatever it is, I can see it well with my 10x finderscope.Mark----- Original Message -----From: Toney BurkhartSent: Saturday, May 12, 2001 9:04 PMSubject: Re: (IAAC) Obj: Unkn own - Inst: aperture=3.5 700mm Focal Length, trHi Mark,
I have checked The STScI Digitized Sky Survey for IC 4622 and it is not in its database.
Also I went to look on Megastar and it has IC 4622 listed, but with out a magnitude listing.
This can only mean that it is a very dim object and would be beyond most amateur telescopes. So I doubt that this object would be the one you saw.

Is IC 4622 not classified yet? I am sorry if I am asking newbie questions, but I am a newbie somewhat. Does anyone have any images of Ic 4622? I will know for sure that is what I was looking it after I see a image of it. I am waiting for darkness to confirm it is still in the same location and possibly get a better map of it's location as well as a better magnitude estimate of it and try to get the name of the star it is close to.
