Planetary nebulae represent a potential late stage of stellar evolution, however the central stars (CSPNe) are relatively faint and therefore pertinent information is merely available for <20% of the Galactic sample. Consequently, the literature was surveyed to construct a new catalogue of 620 CSPNe featuring important spectral classifications and information. The catalogue supersedes the existing iteration by 25%, and includes physical parameters such as luminosity, surface gravity… 
Adjusting the bow-tie: a morpho-kinematic study of NGC 40
We present a comprehensive study of the ionization structure and kinematics of the planetary nebula (PN) NGC 40 (a.k.a. the Bow-tie Nebula). A set of narrow-band images obtained with the Alhambra

This review provides useful background and information on how we find, vet and compile Planetary Nebulae (PNe) candidates and verify them. It presents a summary of the known Galactic PNe population
An investigation of planetary nebulae accompanying PG 1159 central stars, based on Gaia DR2 measurements
This article discusses the physical and kinematical characteristics of planetary nebulae accompanying PG 1159 central stars. The study is based on the parallax and proper motion measurements recently
The five axes of the Turtle: symmetry and asymmetry in NGC 6210
We carry out a comprehensive kinematic and morphological study of the asymmetrical planetary nebula: NGC 6210, known as the Turtle. The nebula's spectacularly chaotic appearance has led to proposals

Central stars of planetary nebulae: New spectral classifications and catalogue
Context. There are more than 3000 confirmed and probable known Galactic planetary nebulae (PNe), but central star spectroscopic information is available for only 13% of them. Aims. We undertook a
Towards an improvement in the spectral description of central stars of planetary nebulae
Context. There are more than 3000 known Galactic planetary nebulae, but only 492 central stars of Galactic planetary nebulae (CSPN) have known spectral types. It is vital to increase this number in
The long-period binary central stars of the planetary nebulae NGC 1514 and LoTr 5
The importance of long-period binaries for the formation and evolution of planetary nebulae is still rather poorly understood, which in part is due to the lack of central star systems that are known
On the post-common-envelope central star of the planetary nebula NGC 2346
The common-envelope phase is one of the most poorly understood phases of (binary) stellar evolution, in spite of its importance in the formation of a wide-range of astrophysical phenomena ranging
Improved spectral descriptions of planetary nebulae central stars
Context. At least 492 central stars of Galactic planetary nebulae (CSPNs) have been assigned spectral types. Since many CSPNs are faint, these classification e fforts are frequently made at low
Planetary nebulae in the direction of the Galactic bulge: On nebulae with emission-line central stars ⋆,⋆⋆
Aims. We present a homogeneous set of spectroscopic measurements secured with 4-m class telescopes for a sample of 90 planetary nebulae (PNe) located in the direction of the Galactic bulge. Methods.
Central stars of planetary nebulae in the Galactic bulge
Context. Optical high-resolution spectra of five central stars of planetary nebulae (CSPN) in the Galactic bulge have been obtained with Keck/HIRES in order to derive their parameters. Since the
The winds of hydrogen-rich central stars of planetary nebulae
We have modelled far-UV, UV and optical spectra of a sample of 10 hydrogen-rich central stars of planetary nebulae (CSPN) using stellar atmosphere codes to derive their photospheric and wind
BINARY CENTRAL STARS OF PLANETARY NEBULAE DISCOVERED THROUGH PHOTOMETRIC VARIABILITY. II. MODELING THE CENTRAL STARS OF NGC 6026 AND NGC 6337
Close-binary central stars of planetary nebulae (CSPNe) provide an opportunity to explore the evolution of PNe, their shaping, and the evolution of binary systems undergoing a common-envelope phase.
Properties of central stars of planetary nebulae with distances in Gaia DR2
Context. We have compiled a catalogue of central stars of planetary nebulae (CSPN) with reliable distances and positions obtained from Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) astrometry. Distances derived from
