# Cantor-Bendixson rank of a first countable space

This question has been bothering me for quite a while, so let me ask it here.

Is there a first-countable compact space $X$ with uncountable Cantor-Bendixson index?

By a Cantor-Bendixson index I mean the smallest ordinal for which the process of taking the derived set stabilises.

A remark: the answer is no for ordinals with the order topology as $\omega_1+1$ is not first countable.

Here is an example. Let $X$ be $\omega_1+1$, topologized such that $U\subseteq\omega_1$ is open iff it is open in the order topology but the only open set containing $\omega_1$ is the entire space $X$. Then $X$ is compact and first-countable, and it is easy to see that for all $\alpha$ the $\alpha$th derived set of $X$ is the same as the $\alpha$th derived set of $\omega_1+1$ with the order topology, so $X$ has Cantor-Bendixson index $\omega_1+1$.
