Observational history

NGC 510 was discovered by Swedish astronomer Herman Schultz on November 11, 1867.[3] The object was initially considered a "misty" object (a galaxy) based on the observations with research instruments of that time, and was included on the NGC list. Later it became clear that it was a double star.[3]
