RE: (IAAC) Obj: Dolidze 14 - Inst: 10" f/6 Newt on Bigfoot mount
Some objects bear the the name of their discoverer. Although I don't
remember the specifics, I believe Dolidze and Dzimselejsvili night both have
been Czechoslovakia. I'll check next time I'm at Dudley Observatory.

Interesting. I have never seen to this object even when Taurus is one of
the constallation I have seen most. The name Dolidze is new for me. Can
you tell something about this catalog?
