The ESO VLT spectrograph X-shooter is currently the only one capable of observing the range from 330 nm up to 2.5 μm in a single shot. X-shooter is very suitable for study of the many diagnostic emission lines in PN providing a uniform flux scale at medium resolution over a large instantaneous wavelength range. Spectroscopy of two contrasting PNe, NGC 6302 and M 2-9, were observed and methods explored for identification of the many fitted emission lines.
