We detect only a partial ring in our images. e SNR DDB 18 is contained within BCLMP 750. Gordon et al. (1998) do not identify it with G97, but we believe they are the same object.

C SNR candidates are from Sabbadin (1979, identified with prefix S), D’Odorico, Dopita, and Benvenuti (1980, prefix DDB), and Gordon et al. (1998, prefix G). Gordon et al. (1998) cross-reference various identifications of the SNRs. d BCLMP 660 appears as a complete ring in Figure 7b of Courtès et al. (1987). We detect only a partial ring in our images. e SNR DDB 18 is contained within BCLMP 750. Gordon et al. (1998) do not identify it with G97, but we believe they are the same object.
