Calibrating type Ia supernovae using the planetary nebula luminosity function. I. Initial results. Feldmeier J.J., Jacoby G.H., Phillips M.M. <Astrophys. J., 657, 76-94 (2007)> =2007ApJ...657...76F

The goals of this survey are to better quantify the zero point of the maximum magnitude-decline rate relation for SNe Ia and to validate the insensitivity of Type Ia luminosity to parent stellar population using the host galaxy Hubble type as a surrogate. We detected a total of 45 PN candidates in NGC 1316, 44 candidates in NGC 1380, and 94 candidates in NGC 4526. Description: Our first observations were obtained on 2003 December 18-20 and 2004 November 11-12 using the Magellan Landon Clay telescope and the MagIC camera. We supplemented our Magellan observations with additional data obtained on 2005 March 10-11 using the WIYN 3.5m telescope and the OPTIC camera. File Summary:
