Accurate positions and finding charts of known planetary nebulae in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Abstract (from CDS):

We present identifications and accurate positions for about 280 planetary nebulae (PNe) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). These positions are needed for follow-up ground or space observations. Entire Schmidt plates have been scanned with the MAMA micro-densitometer, and PPM stars used for the astrometric reduction. The precision achieved is always better than 0.5", and better than 0.3" for most of the objects not located close to the border of the plates. Photometry in the B band is provided with an accuracy of about 0.2-magnitude, except in too crowded zones where the background cannot be determined. Cross-identifications with IRAS sources have also been tabulated and discussed.
