PLANETARY NEBULAE : Part 4
PLANETARY NEBULAE SECTION of the
Astronomical Society of New South Wales
The Planetary Nebulae Section is a dedicated towards
observing, recording and discussing these deep-sky objects which we
know as planetary nebulae. In recent years, the Sydney, Australia
group known as the Astronomical
Society of New South Wales Incorporated (ASNSWI) has gained many
experienced deep-sky observers who interested in these objects. With
our combined experience we can help you add PNe to your deep-sky
observing programmes. Andrew James (me) is presently the Section
Leader whose main responsibilities has been to advise and assist
members of the Society in observing these fascinating objects.
All our section members may be able help you with a
short additional list of targets for small and large telescopes, and
assist you with various observing methods, filters or other
Andrew James has been the Planetary Nebulae Section
Leader since 1998. He has made presentations at numerous ASNSWI
meetings, and has written a detailed series entitled the “Neat Southern Planetary Series” in the
Society Journal “Universe”. His
more specialised interests are with faint, little observed or obscure
southern planetary nebulae. He is also interested in the historical
understanding of these objects and has a special interest in
butterfly-like bipolar planetaries.
Good Luck in Your Hunting!
