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 made with the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) and Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph instruments on board the HST. By observing LMC objects, our sample is free of the distance uncertainty that is the dominant source of error in the determination of CS luminosities in Galactic PNs. By observing…
