Planetary nebulae as standard candles. VI. A test in the Magellanic Clouds. Jacoby G.H., Walker A.R., Ciardullo R. <Astrophys. J. 365, 471 (1990)> =1990ApJ...365..471J
ADC_Keywords: Planetary nebulae ; Magellanic Clouds Keywords: galaxies: distances - galaxies: Magellanic Clouds - luminosity function - nebulae: planetary Abstract: We have measured the [O III] λ5007 fluxes of the brightest planetaries in the LMC (102 objects) and SMC (31 objects) using narrow-band imaging at the CTIO 0.9m telescope. Our fluxes agree to -5% with photoelectric measurements available in the literature (31 objects); agreement is much worse for objects with only spectrophotometric observations. Using the fluxes for the complete sample of bright LMC planetaries, we derive a distance using the planetary nebula luminosity function (PNLF). File Summary:
