- Declination: −31 29 17
- Redshift: 0.0480
- Associations: Shapley Supercluster
- ASCA study of the core region of the Shapley supercluster which
is dominated by 3 rich Abell clusters (A3558, A3562, and A3556) and
two poor clusters (SC1329−313 and SC1327−312) extending
over roughly 2 deg in RA and 1 deg in declination (see figure above).
