The VMC survey. II. A multi-wavelength study of LMC planetary nebulae and their mimics. Miszalski B., Napiwotzki R., Cioni M.-R.L., Groenewegen M.A.T., Oliveira J.M., Udalski A. <Astron. Astrophys., 531, A157 (2011)> =2011A&A...531A.157M
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Planetary nebulae ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: planetary nebulae: general - stars: AGB and post-AGB - binaries: symbiotic - Magellanic Clouds Abstract: The VISTA Magellanic Cloud (VMC) survey is assembling a deep, multi-epoch atlas of YJKs photometry across the Magellanic Clouds. Prior to the VMC survey only the brightest Magellanic Cloud PNe (MCPNe) were accessible at near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths. It is now possible for the first time to assemble the NIR properties of MCPNe and to identify contaminating non-PNe mimics which are best revealed at NIR wavelengths (e.g. HII regions and symbiotic stars). To maintain the unique scientific niche that MCPNe occupy these contaminants must be removed. Here we conduct a VMC-led, multi-wavelength study of 102 objects previously classified as PNe that are located within the first six VMC tiles observed. We present images, photometry, lightcurves, diagnostic colour - colour diagrams and spectral energy distributions used to analyse the entire sample. At least five PNe have newly resolved nebula morphologies, a task previously only possible with the HST. File Summary:
