J/A+A/495/447       PN and HII regions in NGC6822    (Hernandez-Martinez+, 2009)

Emission line objects in NGC 6822. New planetary nebula candidates. Hernandez-Martinez L., Pena M. <Astron. Astrophys., 495, 447-455 (2009)> =2009A&A...495..447H
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Planetary nebulae ; H II regions ; Spectroscopy Keywords: ISM: HII regions - ISM: planetary nebulae: general - galaxies: individual: NGC 6822 (DDO 209) Abstract: Images obtained with the CTIO 4-m telescope and the MOSAIC-2 wide field camera in [OIII] 5007 and Halpha on-band and off-band filters are analyzed to search for emission line objects in the dwarf galaxy NGC 6822. In particular we search for planetary nebula (PN) candidates. In addition, imaging and spectroscopy of a sub-sample of objects obtained with the ESO VLT and FORS 2 spectrograph are used to calibrate the MOSAIC imaging. In the continuum-subtracted images, a large number of line emission regions were detected, for which we measured instrumental magnitudes in all the filters. The [OIII] 5007 and Halpha+[NII] magnitudes were calibrated with the spectroscopy. Description: NGC 6822 was observed on 2005 September 4 and October 9, using the CTIO 4-m Blanco telescope with the MOSAIC 2 camera. Spectrophotometric data for several PN candidates and compact HII regions were obtained with the ESO Very LargeTelescope FORS 2 in MXU mode, on 2006 August 20 and 21. On 2006 August 20 and 22, we observed NGC 6822 with the ESO VLT UT1 (Antu) telescope, in Cerro Paranal, Chile. The FORS 2 (Focal Reducer Spectrograph 2) was used to obtain spectroscopic data to characterize the interstellar medium in NGC 6822 (program ID 077.B-0480). File Summary:
