Nomenclature[edit]

While I see popular sources have used Abell 39 to refer to this planetary nebula, entering this designation into SIMBAD results in an entry for a cluster of galaxies. I think the overlap between the two designations should be mentioned in the article. Icalanise (talk) 17:02, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Done. For SIMBAD you can use "PN A66 39" (Planetary Nebula from Abell's 1966 list number 39.) WilliamKF (talk) 03:24, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
