Abstract (from CDS):

We present an atlas of Hubble Space Telescope images and ground-based, long-slit, narrowband spectra centered on the 6584 Å line of [N II] and the 5007 Å line of [O III]. The spectra were obtained for a variety of slit positions across each target (as shown on the images) in an effort to account for nonspherical nebular geometries in a robust manner. We have extended the prolate ellipsoidal shell model originally devised by Aaquist, Zhang, and Kwok to generate synthetic images, as well as long-slit spectra. Using this model, we have derived basic parameters for the subsample of PNe that present ellipsoidal appearances and regular kinematic patterns. We find differences between our parameters for the target PNe as compared to those of previous studies, which we attribute to increased spatial resolution for our image data and the inclusion of kinematic data in the model fits. The data and analysis presented in this paper can be combined with detections of nebular angular expansion rates to determine precise distances to the PN targets.
