Notes for object ABELL 0763

2 note(s) found in NED.


1. 1999MNRAS.306..857C
Re:ABELL 0763
The identification of this source is confused. Our optical
identification of the point-like object at the X-ray centroid
(RA 09 12 31.0, Dec 15 55 25; J2000) is of a star, despite it being
associated with a moderate, spatially extended radio source. The
spectrum presented in this paper is of the dominant galaxy 4.7 arcmin
to the N of this star, which despite being the nearest obvious BCG, is
probably too far to be associated with the X-ray source.
