XTE J1748-288 is an intermediate-mass black hole located in the Galactic Bar. First observed as a gamma-ray source in the year 1998, it has today been resolved as a large black hole.

The system itself is composed of multiple young T-Tauri and one Ae/Be star, making it clear as an area of active star formation. However, there are no planets at all in the system, making it quite unremarkable apart from the historic value.
