Abell 85

Hi all,

For those that I didn’t see on Friday, the previous post requesting if anyone knew what the object was, it is Abell 85 (or otherwise CTB-1). When it was found, it was thought to be a Planetary Nebula, and given the label Abell 85. It has since been re-assessed and now is believed to be a Super Nova Remnant. It has also been given the name CTB-1 but has not been given a SN number and not logged into the list of Super Novas. Hence I couldn’t find it!
