J/ApJ/344/715   Planetary nebulae as standard candles. IV.    (Ciardullo+, 1989)

Planetary nebulae as standard candles. IV. A test in the Leo I group. Ciardullo R., Jacoby G.H., Ford H.C. <Astrophys. J. 344, 715 (1989)> =1989ApJ...344..715C
ADC_Keywords: Planetary nebulae ; Galaxies, nearby Keywords: galaxies: distances - galaxies: individual (NGC 3377, NGC 3379, NGC 3384) - galaxies: stellar content - luminosity function - nebulae: planetary Abstract: We present the results of a planetary nebula survey of galaxies in the Leo I group performed with the Kitt Peak and Cerro Tololo 4m telescopes and on-band off-band λ5007 interference filters. In all, we detected 249 PN candidates populating the top 1.5mag of the planetary nebula luminosity function (PNLF), including 93 in the E0 galaxy NGC 3379, 54 in the E6 galaxy NGC 3377, and 102 in the S0 spiral NGC 3384.
