Page 13 - The nucleus seems of a pink or fire color with power 90. ith higher powers the color seems less brilliant, but still is quite noticeable. With 450 the nucleus has a perceptible size, but is quite hazy, although very tinct from the surrounding nebulosity. PA of tail with nucleus at the e<ige . the field, power 90, 4o?7.
Page 12 - Tail can be distinctly traced to one diameter of the field of the finder. The outlines of the head, with power 90, are the same as on the 28th. I am not so sure of seeing the faint outer curves.
