John Herschel discovered NGC 7180 = h2140 on 23 Sep 1830 and recorded "vF; S; R; lbM; the first of 2 [with NGC 7185 ]." His position is just 1' too far west. Due to a mix-up, WH is credited (H III-693) with the discovery in the Slough Catalogue, GC and NGC, but H III-693 applies to NGC 7185 . See notes on that number.
