Improved prospects for the detection of new Large Magellanic Cloud planetary nebulae

Miszalski, B; Napiwotzki, R; Cioni, M.-R. L; Nie, J

Description

The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) contains the nearest large extragalactic population of planetary nebulae (PNe). A shallow viewing angle and low interstellar reddening towards the LMC potentially means a larger, more complete flux-limited population can be assembled than for any other galaxy. These advantages appear to be reflected by the small gap between the catalogued (∼700 PNe) and estimated (1000 ± 250 PNe) population size. With more detailed multi-wavelength studies the catalogued number...[Show more]
