We present a detailed study of a bipolar, possible Type I planetary nebula (PN), PHR 1315−6555 (PN G305.3−03.1), which was discovered as part of the Macquarie/AAO/Strasbourg Hα planetary nebula project (MASH), and that we considered at the time was an excellent candidate for membership of the distant, compact, intermediate-age open cluster, ESO 96-SC04. The strong evidence for this association is presented here, making this the only known example of a PN physically associated with a Galactic…

Further Studies of the Association of Planetary Nebula BMP J16135406 with Galactic Open Cluster NGC 6067
Planetary Nebulae (PNe) that are physical members of Galactic open clusters are powerful probes that allow precise determination of their distance and crucially their initial mass on the main
Hubble Space Telescope Spectroscopy of a Planetary Nebula in an M31 Open Cluster: Hot-bottom Burning at 3.4 M⊙
We use imaging and spectroscopy from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to examine the properties of a bright planetary nebula (PN) projected within M31's young open cluster B477-D075. We show that the
We report the results of an [O iii] λ5007 spectroscopic survey for planetary nebulae (PNe) located within the star clusters of M31. By examining R ∼ 5000 spectra taken with the WIYN+Hydra
Central Stars of Planetary Nebulae in Galactic Open Clusters: Providing additional data for the White Dwarf Initial-to-Final-Mass Relation
Abstract Accurate (< 10%) distances of Galactic star clusters allow a precise estimation of the physical parameters of any physically associated Planetary Nebula (PN) and also that of its central
Investigating potential planetary nebula/cluster pairs
Context. Fundamental parameters characterizing the end-state of intermediate-mass stars may be constrained by discovering planetary nebulae (PNe) in open clusters (OCs). Cluster membership may be
Planetary Nebulae towards the Galactic bulge – I. [O iii] fluxes
We present [OIII]"5007 fluxes and angular diametres for 435 Planetary Nebulae (PNe) in the central 10 ! "10 ! region towards the Galactic bulge. Our sample is taken from the new discoveries of the
On the crucial cluster Andrews-Lindsay 1 and a 4% distance solution for its planetary nebula
Andrews-Lindsay 1 is a pertinent open cluster because it may host the planetary nebula (PN) PHR 1315-6555, yet ambiguities linger concerning its fundamental parameters (>50% scatter). New multiband
High-resolution Hubble Space Telescope archive imaging and high-dispersion spectroscopy are used to study the complex morphological and kinematical structure of the planetary nebula, NGC 2818. We
A high-mass planetary nebula in a Galactic open cluster
Planetary nebulae are the ionized ejected envelopes surrounding the remnant cores of dying stars. Theory predicts that main-sequence stars of one to about eight solar masses may eventually form
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
