Too bad. I don't know, where my brain was... I had just skimmed through some articles and meant to have caught the source correctly. I'll seek, where I've actually have seen it, maybe in Abramowitsch/Stegun...
Anyway, it is easy to derive it with pen & paper.

I'll be back in the evening, going for a walk today -
