PLANETARY NEBULAE SECTION
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
Astronomical Society of N.S.W.
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 is
presently the Section Leader whose main responsibility is to advise
and assist member of the Society in observing these fasinating objects.
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 equipment.
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 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!
