Subject: IC 1257

Folks,
     A fellow named Czernic Crute in LA has sent me a note asking about the
possible globular cluster IC 1257, which is missing from my globular clusters
file, and from the Djorgovski & Meylan conference catalogue.
     This IC object was reported by Spitaler in 1890 (AN 125, 282), and his
position precesses (using current constants) to:  17 27 08.7  -7 05 34.  The
cluster appears very nicely on the DSS (get a field about 0.02 deg or smaller!)
and is in the GSC as GSC 5079-0033 at end figures 08s.5/35".
     No study at all in the literature that I could find.
\Brian
