NED Abstract

Copyright by Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams. 2008CBET.1223A...1G Electronic Telegram No. 1223 Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION SUPERNOVA 2008P IN NGC 2550A Alessandro Dimai, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, on behalf of the CROSS program (cf. IAUC 7373), reports his discovery of an apparent supernova (mag about 17.5) on two unfiltered CCD images (limiting magnitude about 18.5) taken on Jan. 23.88 UT with the 0.5-m "Ullrich" telescope of the Col Drusci Observatory; confirming images from Jan. 24.85 show 2008P at mag 16.1. The new object is located at R.A. = 8h28m39s.18, Decl. = +73o45'02".9 (equinox 2000.0), which is about 3" west and 10" north of the nucleus of the galaxy NGC 2550A (cf. Sulentic and Tifft 1973, *The Revised New General Catalogue*, p. 116). Nothing is visible at this position on a CROSS image taken on 2007 Dec. 17 (limiting mag about 19.0) or on Palomar Sky Survey infrared, red, and blue plates.
