Requested move[edit]

QSO B1319+4283C 285 — This is name is more used in google scholar, is the designation from a well known catalog, and this isn't a quasar according to SIMBAD, so shouldn't be named using the quasar naming method. — (talk) 10:39, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

reference used is NED (using this name), but NED refuses to spit out any results using this name, so the reference is clearly false. This claims to be the first quasar discovered, but it isn't. SIMBAD says that it should be classed as a radio galaxy. The text claims it is a quasar. Google scholar refuses to spit out any results for this name. Most results come from 3C 285 (an alternate name listed at SIMBAD) The quasar infobox says it's a Seyfert 1 galaxy, and not a quasar at all. He claims that it's 800 ly away and moving at 150mph... which is clearly wrong. (talk) 10:39, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

NED works just fine. Have you tried clicking By Name then entering the object name in the "Input Parameter" called "Object Name:", and then pressing the button Submit Query? ... said: Rursus (mbork³) 19:31, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
