B 40294
Peculiar sp. -19° 3634
A wide absorption band ^[[bet. H gamma & H delta]]. This band looks something like H & K of another star but chart plate shows no other star.
Conf. on B 9444 sp. rather ft.
B 11395 sp. rather ft
B9604 sp. rather ft.
B 40575 good
B 13138 rather ft.

This absorption band is seen on other K stars on these plates, but much less marked. I have never seen a spectrum in which it is so conspicuous. Get  wavelengths of band.
