J/other/RMxAA/37.115   Optical coordinates of southern PNe (Kimeswenger+, 2001)

Optical coordinates of southern planetary nebulae. Kimeswenger S. <Rev. Mex. Astron. Astrofis., 37, 115-145 (2001)> =2001RMxAA..37..115K
ADC_Keywords: Planetary nebulae ; Positional data Keywords: Planetary Nebulae: general Abstract: A homogeneous set of new measurements of nearly all (995 out of 1007) objects from the Strasbourg-ESO Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae (Cat. V/100) or in the first supplement of this catalogue in the area covered by the DENIS survey (B/denis) (δ<+2°) is given here. A list of 24 new and 27 wrong cross-identifications with sources in the IRAS PSC catalogue and some confusion in the literature is listed as well. File Summary:
