In this list, STF 507 and STF 513 are the same star.  STF 507 does not exist in the WDS catalog afaik.  So, 507 should be deleted in the Nexus. Constellation  CAM.

Might be like a map where they add small non-existant side streets to customise their map. If they appears on another then someone has copied the original.

 

So a dummy star (maybe more) could be in there so that if someone else just copies unoffically the list then it is obvious.

Likely a duplicate in the original Struve catalogue. Doesn't need conspiracy theories. grin.gif
