Subject: [vsnet-chat 964] Star superposed on NGC 4013

     The galaxy photometry compilation of Longo & deVaucouleurs (Univ. of
Texas monograph no.3, 1983) provides UBV photometry of this star:  V = 12.65,
B-V = 0.41, U-B = -0.01.  The colors indicate an ordinary star near spectral
type F2.  Given the problems mention on the IAUC (log-scaled or stars-removed
images of galaxies at the NED Web site), I think there is no longer any need
to pay attention to this star, but greater need for attention to image sources
and to the literature!
