Dear all,

I have examined Kyoto image, then am awared that the position of this
bright object is fairly close to:
  USNO_A1.0 1350.08089912  11:18:10.826  +48:02:12.55  18.8r 20.1b
= USNO_A2.0 1350.07924726  11:18:10.851  +48:02:12.78  18.8r 19.4b

There is no USNO star within 1' from this star, but on DSS R image
(either generation), several fainter objects can be seen.  More
precise astrometry is in progress.  

Sincerely Yours,
