The AAO/UKST SuperCOSMOS Hα survey
The UK Schmidt Telescope (UKST) of the Anglo-Australian Observatory completed a narrowband Ha plus [N II] 6548, 6584-A survey of the Southern Galactic Plane and Magellanic Clouds in late 2003. The
The Macquarie/AAO/Strasbourg Hα Planetary Nebula Catalogue: MASH
We present the Macquarie/AAO/Strasbourg Hα Planetary Nebula Catalogue (MASH) of over 900 true, likely and possible new Galactic planetary nebulae (PNe) discovered from the AAO/UKST Hα survey of the
The VST Photometric Hα Survey of the Southern Galactic Plane and Bulge (VPHAS
The VST Photometric HSurvey of the Southern Galactic Plane and Bulge (VPHAS+) is surveying the southern Milky Way in u,g,r,i and Hat �1 arcsec angular resolution. Its footprint spans the Galactic

Abstract The total number of true, likely and possible planetary nebulae (PN) now known in the Milky Way is nearly 3000, double the number known a decade ago. The new discoveries are a legacy of the
A Catalogue of integrated Hα fluxes for 1258 galactic planetary nebulae
We present a catalogue of new integrated H-alpha fluxes for 1258 Galactic planetary nebulae (PNe), with the majority, totalling 1234, measured from the Southern H-Alpha Sky Survey Atlas (SHASSA)
A revised historical light curve of Eta Carinae and the timing of close periastron encounters
The historical light curve of the 19th century ‘Great Eruption’ of"Carinae provides a striking record of the violent instabilities encountered by massive stars. In this paper, we report and analyse
New light on Galactic post-asymptotic giant branch stars - I. First distance catalogue
We have commenced a detailed analysis of the known sample of Galactic post-asymptotic giant branch (PAGB) objects compiled in the Toru´ n catalogue of Szczerba et al., and present, for the first
Spitzer IRAC observations of newly discovered planetary nebulae from the MACQUARIE-AAO-Strasbourg Hα planetary nebula project
We compare H?, radio continuum, and Spitzer Space Telescope images of 58 planetary nebulae (PNe) recently discovered by the Macquarie-AAO-Strasbourg H? PN Project (MASH) of the SuperCOSMOS H? Survey.
The Chandra X-Ray Survey of Planetary Nebulae (CHANPLANS): Probing Binarity, Magnetic Fields, and Wind Collisions
We present an overview of the initial results from the Chandra Planetary Nebula Survey (CHANPLANS), the first systematic (volume-limited) Chandra X-Ray Observatory survey of planetary nebulae (PNe)
Observational Confirmation of a Link between Common Envelope Binary Interaction and Planetary Nebula Shaping
A current issue in the study of planetary nebulae with close binary central stars is the extent to which the binaries affect the shaping of the nebulae. Recent studies have begun to show a high
