NGC 7100
Recorded (Aug 31, 1886) by
Guillaume Bigourdan
Not observed by Rudolf Spitaler
A star in Pegasus (RA 21 39 06.9, Dec +08 57 02)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7100 (Bigourdan (list II #90), 1860 RA 21 32 27, NPD 81 44) is "very faint, mottled but not resolved". The first IC notes "Seconds of RA are 41, NPD is 81 45.2 (Spitaler)". The second IC adds "RA 20 32 13, NPD 81 40 (Bigourdan). Query, is Spitaler's object (IC p. 227) a different one?" (answer to Dreyer's query, yes, it is).
Discovery Notes: Spitaler thought he observed NGC 7100, thanks to incorrect NGC positions for that and NGC 7101; but his position falls exactly on the galaxy listed as NGC 7101, so he actually observed that object, and not NGC 7100.

NGC 7101 (= PGC 67118, and not =
NGC 7100)
Discovered (Aug 3, 1864) by Albert Marth
Also observed (Nov 6, 1891) by Rudolf Spitaler
A 14th-magnitude galaxy (type C??) in Pegasus (RA 21 39 34.5, Dec +08 52 38)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7101 (= GC 6002, Marth #448, 1860 RA 21 32 41, NPD 81 39) is "faint, very small, round, stellar". The first IC says "Not seen by Spitaler; evidently = 7100" (actually, Spitaler's position for what he thought was NGC 7100 falls exactly on NGC 7101, so he did see NGC 7101, and just didn't know it). Thanks to confusion about Spitaler's observation, many references mistakenly list NGC 7101 as NGC 7100.
Discovery Notes: The notes in the first IC for NGC 7100 and 7101 are the result of an incorrect conclusion by Spitaler as to which object he observed (partly thanks to both NGC positions being wrong). His supposed position for NGC 7100 falls exactly on the galaxy listed above, so there is no doubt that he did not observe NGC 7100, and did observe NGC 7101.

NGC 7114, Nova Cygni 1876 (= Q Cygni)
First observed (Nov 2, 1876) by
Julius Schmidt as Nova Cygni 1876
Also observed (Sep 2, 1877) by Ralph Copeland
Discovered (Oct 3, 1885) by Gerhard Lohse

The object in question is Nova Cygni 1876, which was discovered by Schmidt, then observed and discussed by Copeland. Lohse claimed (as stated in a note as the end of the NGC) that it was surrounded by nebulosity, whence Dreyer's inclusion of the object in the NGC (despite not giving any credit for its discovery), but no nebulosity was ever seen by any other observer.
Physical Information: As a nova, easily visible in 1876, but now long faded from view.

Discovered (Oct 5, 1834) by John Herschel (and later listed as NGC 7141)
A 12th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SBbc?) in Indus (RA 21 52 15.1, Dec -55 34 11)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7141 (= GC 4708 = JH 3893, 1860 RA 21 42 30, NPD 146 13.6) is "faint, large, round, gradually then pretty suddenly much brighter middle (? = h 3892)", the query implying that this may be a duplicate of (JH) 3892 = NGC 7140 with a one degree error in the position (as turned out to be correct).
Physical Information: Given the duplicate entry, see NGC 7140 for anything else.
