A reanalysis of data taken on the Cygnus region in 1989-90 using the Whipple Observatory atmospheric Cherenkov imaging telescope confirms the existence of the TeV J2032+4130 source reported by the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory and published by the HEGRA Collaboration. The significance at the a priori HEGRA position is 3.3sigma. The peak signal was found at RA=20hr32min, Dec=+41deg33min. This is 0.6deg north of Cygnus X-3 which was the original target of the observations. The flux level (12% of the level of the Crab Nebula) is intermediate between the two later observations and suggests that the TeV source is variable.
