The paper proves (assuming the continuum hypothesis CH) that there exists a perfectly normal compact topological space Z and a countable set E ⊂ Z, such that Z\E is not condensed onto a compact. The existence of such a space answers (in CH) negatively to the question of V.I. Ponomareva: Is every perfectly normal compact an α-space? It is proved that in the class of ordered compacts the property of being an α-space is not multiplicative.
