Wilson discovered 3 IC-objects with the 16.2" refractor of Goodsell Observatory (see picture). The galaxies IC 841 and IC 851, both in Coma, were found during a search for Winnecke's comet.

*) This magazine has nothing to do with the modern, european Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A). The old one was published by William Wallace Payne (Goodsell Obs.) from 1892-95 and was continued as the Astrophysical Journal by George Ellery Hale (Chicago). It is interesting that Payne also created two other, more popular magazines: The Sidereal Messenger (1882-92) and Popular Astronomy (starting 1893). Both had equal-named forerunners published by Ormsby Mitchel (Cincinatti Obs.), but they were short living (1864-66, 1860).
