If you read Steve Gottlieb's article in the October 2021 issue of Sky & Telescope entitled "Meet the Neighbors: The Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Family," you likely followed the link for more finder charts. We include an updated finder chart (that appears on page 28) with a revised position for Wray 16-423. Below, you'll find Digitized Sky Survey images for the remaining objects for which deeper finders weren't included in the print issue. Refer to the table on page 33 for coordinates and other information.
