IC 1300 (=
NGC 6798 = PGC 63171)
Discovered (Aug 5, 1885) by Lewis Swift (and later listed as NGC 6798)
Discovered (Oct 2, 1891) by Lewis Swift (X-47) (and later listed as IC 1300)
A 13th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0) in Cygnus (RA 19 24 03.1, Dec +53 37 27)
The second IC adds "Delete this entry; = NGC 6798." The double listing is due to a one degree error in the NPD for the 1891 observation. Swift himself discovered the error, but too late to prevent the duplication.

IC 1301 (=
IC 4867 = PGC 63207)
Discovered (Apr 15, 1890) by Lewis Swift (IX-93) (and later listed as IC 1301)
Discovered (Jun 21, 1901) by Sherburne Burnham (and later listed as IC 4867)
A 13th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0/a) in Cygnus (RA 19 26 31.9, Dec +50 07 33)
The second IC adds "Should the NPD be 36 arcmin less? In M.N. lxi p. 48 Swift says that the declination should be +49 40. In A.N. 3004 it was 49 04.0. It is probably a small nebula 20 seconds west and 1 arcmin south of Burnham's double star 9349, or at RA 19 22 45, NPD 40 09 (= IC 4867)." Apparent size 1.2 by 0.7 arcmin?

IC 1302 (= PGC 63307)
Discovered (Jun 9, 1866) by

A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SBc?) in Cygnus (RA 19 30 52.8, Dec +35 47 06)

IC 1316 (?? =
NGC 6901 ??)
Recorded (Jul 9, 1885) by Guillaume Bigourdan (228)
A lost, nonexistent or misrecorded object in Aquila (RA 20 22 26.3, Dec +06 31 40)
Per Dreyer, IC 1316 (= Bigourdan 228, 1860 RA 20 15 33, NPD 83 55) is an "extremely faint nebula, suspected". The position precesses to RA 20 22 26.3, Dec +06 31 40, but there is nothing at the recorded position. There is a spiral galaxy (NGC 6901) that was also listed by Dreyer as extremely faint only 5 arcmin south of IC 1316's position that was observed by Bigourdan six years later without realizing its prior discovery, so it may be what he observed in this case as well. However, this suggestion is not universally accepted, and IC 1316 is generally considered lost or nonexistent.

IC 1339 (= PGC 65799)
Discovered (Sep 29, 1791) by
William Herschel
Discovered (Aug 17, 1891) by Stephane Javelle
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SBb) in Capricornus (RA 20 57 55.5, Dec -17 56 32)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 1339 (Javelle #401, (W. Herschel), 1860 RA 20 50 01, NPD 108 28.9) is "faint, small, gradually brighter middle, mottled but not resolved".
Discovery Notes: William Herschel observed this object with his 40-foot telescope, but never published the observation, so it does not appear in the GC or NGC. Wolfgang Steinicke found the observation while analyzing the elder Herschel's 40-foot sweep data (hence its being in parentheses in the IC entry shown here).
Physical Information: Apparent size 1.4 by 0.8 arcmin.
