ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Planetary nebulae ; Spectroscopy Keywords: galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: individual (NGC 3379) - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - galaxies: structure - planetary nebulae: general Abstract: We present results from Planetary Nebula Spectrograph (PN.S) observations of the elliptical galaxy NGC 3379 and a description of the data reduction pipeline. We detected 214 planetary nebulae, of which 191 are ascribed to NGC 3379 and 23 to the companion galaxy NGC 3384. File Summary:

Note (1): PNS-EPN NGC3379 NNN in Simbad. The PN.S data follow the usual definitions, and the ID is chosen to be compatible with proposed IAU standards (EPN standing for "Extragalactic Planetary Nebula"). Note (2): Objects were considered matched with a PN in our catalog if the positions agreed within 3.0arcsec and their velocities within 100km/s without adjustment for systematic offsets in either case. Objects with an ID starting with "6" are taken from table 6 of Sluis et al. (2006, J/AJ/131/2089).
