Extract

The majority of planetary nebulae (PNe) at the distance of the Magellanic Clouds typically subtend 1 arcsec or less on the sky. The Planetary Camera onboard the Hubble Space Telescope has a scale of 0.044 arcsec per pixel and is therefore ideal to use to image these objects. At present, 16 LMC and 5 SMC objects have been imaged in the [O III] 5007 angstrom emission line, as part of this program. An additional 10 LMC and 5 SMC objects have been imaged in the same line under the Guaranteed Time Observer program.
