It is known among the european astronomers that messier confirmed in a letter to a freind that this was in fact a duplicate entry. most americans won't even consider this explanation, and insist that it is the object in draco. STRANGE of them. smiley - smiley

Did you read the bit about M102?

The part about it being a duplicate is listed first! *AND*, you got credit for adding that bit to the entry. The information that some people speculate that the object is in Draco is listed for information because there is a bit of controversy about this. I don't know why you keep beating this dead horse!

because it is an issue that crops up every time a european astronomer talks to an american one, so that part needs to be mentioned! smiley - winkeye
Both sides seem absolutely convinced that their side is right, and the way it says it at the moment doesn't reflect that. It is a destinctly european vs american viewpoint, likethe problem with genetically modified food.
PS thanks for the credit.
