IV/24               Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae    (Kohoutek, 2001)

Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae Kohoutek L. <Astron. Astrophys., 378, 843 (2001)> <Abh. Hamburger Stermw. XII (2001)> =2001A&A...378..843K
ADC_Keywords: Planetary nebulae; Cross identifications Keywords: ISM: planetary nebulae: general Abstract: The "Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae (Version 2000)" appears in Abhandlungen aus der Hamburger Sternwarte, Band XII in the year 2001. It is a continuation of CGPN(1967) and contains 1510 objects classified as galactic PNe up to the end of 1999. The lists of possible pre-PNe and possible post-PNe are also given. The catalogue is restricted only to the data belonging to the location and identification of the objects. It gives identification charts of PNe discovered since 1965 (published in the supplements to CGPN) and those charts of objects discovered earlier, which have wrong or uncertain identification. The question "what is a planetary nebula" is discussed and the typical values of PNe and of their central stars are summarized. Short statistics about the discoveries of PNe are given. The catalogue is also available in the Centre de Donnees, Strasbourg and at Hamburg Observatory via internet. File Summary:
