is lost. This object was found by Copeland with LdR's 72-inch
reflector while he was examining what he thought was NGC 296. His description
of the field is precise: "[NGC 296] F, R, *10m (yellow) Pos 29.6 deg, Dist
123.1 arcsec. Nova [NGC 295], S, R, and with a * or another neb 10 arcsec n.
Pos from  242.0 deg, Dist 314.6 arcsec or 21.6 seconds p, 147.6 arcsec
s." Unfortunately, this configuration of objects is nowhere to be found near
(which see for more).
I've searched the POSS1 +30 deg 00h 52m field, but could find no galaxies with
neighboring stars as Copeland describes. Perhaps a search of the adjacent
fields would turn up something.
