Abstract In this fifth paper of the series, we examine the spectroscopy and morphology of four southern Galactic planetary nebulae Hen 2-141, NGC 5307, IC 2553, and PB 6 using new integral field spectroscopy data. The morphologies and ionisation structures of the sample are given as a set of emission-line maps. In addition, the physical conditions, chemical compositions, and kinematical characteristics of these objects are derived. The results show that PB 6 and Hen 2-141 are of very high… 
An imaging spectroscopic survey of the planetary nebula NGC 7009 with MUSE
Aims. The spatial structure of the emission lines and continuum over the 50″ extent of the nearby, O-rich, PN NGC 7009 (Saturn Nebula) have been observed with the MUSE integral field spectrograph on
Mapping Excitation in the Inner Regions of the Planetary Nebula NGC 5189 Using HST WFC3 Imaging
The planetary nebula (PN) NGC 5189 around a Wolf–Rayet [WO] central star demonstrates one of the most remarkable complex morphologies among PNe with many multiscale structures, showing evidence of
Exploring the differences of integrated and spatially resolved analysis using integral field unit data: the case of Abell 14
We present a new approach to study planetary nebulae using integral field spectroscopy. VLT@VIMOS datacube of the planetary nebula Abell 14 is analysed in three different ways by extracting: (i) the
Catalogue of the central stars of planetary nebulae
Planetary nebulae represent a potential late stage of stellar evolution, however, their central stars (CSPNe) are relatively faint and, therefore, pertinent information is available for merely < 20%

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
Analysis of Multiple Shell Planetary Nebulae Based on HST/WFPC2 Extended 2D Diagnostic Diagrams
The investigation of gaseous nebulae, emitting in forbidden lines, is often based extensively on diagnostic diagrams. The special physics of these lines often allows for disentangling with a few line
Molecular Hydrogen Microstructures in Planetary Nebulae
Molecular hydrogen (H 2 ) emission is commonly detected in planetary nebulae (PNe), specially in objects with bipolar morphologies. New studies showed that H 2 gas is also packed in microstructures
Morphologies of Wolf–Rayet Planetary Nebulae Based on IFU Observations
Integral field unit (IFU) spectroscopy of planetary nebulae (PNe) provides a plethora of information about their morphologies and ionization structures. An IFU survey of a sample of PNe around
H2 emission in the low-ionization structures of the planetary nebulae NGC 7009 and NGC 6543
Despite the many studies in the last decades, the low-ionisation structures (LISs) of planetary nebulae (PNe) still hold several mysteries. Recent imaging surveys have demonstrated that LISs are
IFU spectroscopy of southern PN VI: the extraordinary chemo-dynamics of Hen 2-111
In this paper we present integral field spectroscopy of the extraordinary Type I bipolar planetary nebula Hen 2-111. In the lobes we map fast moving knots of material with [N II]$\lambda


IFU spectroscopy of Southern Planetary Nebulae: III
In this paper we describe integral field spectroscopic observations of four southern Galactic Planetary Nebulae (PNe), M3-4, M3-6, Hen2-29 and Hen2-37 covering the spectral range, 3400-7000 A. We
The physics and kinematics of the evolved, interacting planetary nebula PN G342.0-01.7
Here we aim to study the physical and kinematical characteristics of the unstudied old planetary nebula (PN) PN G342.0-01.7, which shows evidence of interaction with its surrounding interstellar
Sulfur, Chlorine, and Argon in Planetary Nebulae. IIA. Observations of a Southern Sample
In this paper we present fully reduced and dereddened emission line strengths for a sample of 45 southern type II planetary nebulae (PNs).The spectrophotometry for these PNs covers an extended
Integral Field Spectroscopy of Faint Halos of Planetary Nebulae
We present the first integral field spectroscopy observations of the two planetary nebulae NGC 3242 and NGC 4361 with the VIMOS instrument attached to VLT-UT3. By co-adding a large number of spaxels,
Fast, low-ionization emission regions and other microstructures in planetary nebulae
Planetary nebulae (PNs) have highly articulated structures, called "microstructures", little of which has been explored with spectrophotometry at high spatial resolution. We report spectrophotometric
The goal of the present study is twofold. First, we employ new HST/STIS spectra and photoionization modeling techniques to determine the progenitor masses of eight planetary nebulae (IC 2165, IC
