Category: Reflection nebula
Class: 
Constellation: Ori
Data: mag   size 
Position: RA 06:07.8  DEC +18:40
Description:
A faint star surrounded by a tiny, round, very faint nebula.  MegaStar
has this plotted in the wrong place (06h 09.2m; +18041').  That is the
same position plotted my first edition Uranometria before the errata
tables indicated a change in position.  However, MegaStar does have
the "nonexistent" NGC 2163 plotted in the correct position for Ced 62.
It turns out that Ced 62 = NGC 2163, as confirmed by Brian Skiff.
