NGC 30 (= "PGC 5067665")
Recorded (Oct 30, 1864) by Albert Marth
A magnitude 14.8 and 15.0 double star in Pegasus (RA 00 10 50.7, Dec +21 58 36)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 30 (= GC 5088, Marth #4, 1860 RA 00 03 38, NPD 68 49) is "a 13th magnitude nebulous star". The position precesses to RA 00 10 50.6, Dec +21 57 45, an arcmin south of the pair listed above. Per Corwin, there are no galaxies within 10 arcmin, and the close double would appear nebulous under less than perfect seeing, so the description confirms the identification.
Historical Note: The NGC entry is copied directly from Lassell's 1866 paper about observations at Malta, which included Marth's discoveries.
Note About PGC Designation: LEDA assigns a PGC designation for this entry even though it is only a double star. However, a search of the database for PGC 5067665 returns no result, so the PGC designation is essentially useless (hence its being shown in quotes).
