found an error in SkySafari list

Decided to have a go at the NGC Finest observing lists in the RASC folder in the online repositories for SkySafari.

Opened the Fall (or Autumn) file.

And immediately found an error!


The list showed NGC 289.

Ah, no. The official RASC Finest NGC list from the Observer's Handbook has IC 289.

I don't know who made these lists but unfortunately this is a gross error that we need to get corrected.

There are minor issues that I might nitpick about if the Simulation Curriculum people with entertain me.
