J/ApJ/339/53       Planetary nebulae as standard candles. II. (Ciardullo+, 1989)

Planetary nebulae as standard candles. II. The calibration in M 31 and its companions. Ciardullo R., Jacoby G.H., Ford H.C., Neill J.D. <Astrophys. J. 339, 53 (1989)> =1989ApJ...339...53C
ADC_Keywords: Planetary nebulae ; Galaxies, nearby Keywords: galaxies individual (M31) - galaxies: stellar content - luminosity function - nebulae: planetary Abstract: We present the results of a planetary nebula survey of M31's bulge performed with the Kitt Peak No. 1, 0.9m telescope and on-band off-band λ5007 filters. We detected a total of 429 planetary nebulae (PNs), of which 104 are members of a statistically complete and homogeneous sample covering the top 2.5mag of the planetary nebula luminosity function (PNLF).
