ABSTRACT We present Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of new planetary nebulae (PNe) that were discovered in the Reid‐Parker Anglo‐Australian Observatory/UK Schmidt Telescope Hα survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud. These serendipitous observations from various HST programs yield independent confirmations of six PNe; one other detected nebula may also be a PN, and one appears to be a region of diffuse emission. The high‐resolution HST archival images enable us to determine the physical sizes…

Post-Asymptotic Giant Branch Evolution in the Large Magellanic Cloud: A Study of the Central Stars of Planetary Nebulae*
We present medium- and broadband Hubble Space Telescope (HST) photometry of a sample of 35 central stars (CSs) of planetary nebulae (PNs) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The observations were
Morphology and Evolution of the Large Magellanic Cloud Planetary Nebulae
The LMC is ideal for studying the coevolution of planetary nebulae (PNs) and their central stars in that the debilitating uncertainties of the Galactic PN distance scale and selection biases from
