[53.05] Spatially Resolved X-ray Spectroscopy of the Supernova Remnant G296.1-0.7

We report the preliminary results of our analysis of ASCA X-ray observations of G296.1-0.7, a bright Galactic supernova remnant with an unusual morphology (a nearly complete ring with an extension to the southwest). Our previous observation with the ROSAT PSPC showed evidence of relatively slight but statistically significant variations in the spectrum across the remnant. We detail our study of spatial variations in the X-ray spectrum of the remnant, including non-equilibrium ionization fits to the spectra.
