NGC 7098. The incorrect RA from JH's CGH observations (it is 2 minutes too
large, probably a simple reduction or clock reading error) has been copied
into various catalogues all the way up to RC2. RC3 used the correct position
from ESO. This is one of the brighter and larger ringed galaxies in the
southern sky, and is probably not included in the Shapley-Ames catalogue
because its outer ring (formed from the arms) has a relatively low surface
24" (4/12/08 - Magellan Observatory, Australia): at 200x appeared bright, large, sharply concentrated with a small, intense core ~20" in diameter. Surrounding the core is a large, fainter halo, elongated 3:2 SW-NE, ~2.0'x1.4'. This galaxy appears much brighter than NGC 7095, which was just previously observed, although the total B magnitudes are identical.
