The first application, presented in this paper, is a radial-velocity catalogue (with uncertainties of ∼2-6km/s) of nearly 800 emission-line point-like sources, including ∼450 new discoveries. Most of the sources are likely planetary nebulae, although we also detect five novae (having erupted in the first 8 months of 2016) and one new supernova remnant candidate. Description: We present a catalogue of the point-like sources in the central 11'x11' part of M31 obtained with SITELLE. For each source we report the radial velocity as long as the spectrophotmetric flux of H-alpha, [NII]6584 and the sum of the [SII]6717,6731 doublet. The ID of the sources cross-matched with the catalogues from Merrett et al. (2006MNRAS.369..120M, J/MNRAS/369/120) and Halliday et al. (2006MNRAS.369...97H, J/MNRAS/369/97) are also indicated. We also report the detection of the sources in the images of the Local Group Galaxies Survey (Massey et al., 2006, 2006AJ....131.2478M). File Summary:
