Abstract

A technique for efficient inspection of large volumes of imaging data for planetary nebulae (PNe) is demonstrated. Image segmentation to subscreen size is automated. Inspection of consecutive small images mitigates inadvertently missing sections of large images with manual image traversal. Automated interleaving of on-band and off-band images with corresponding difference imaging is carried out. Bi-directional single-click navigation of a segmented, interleaved data set allows blinking of complementary images and efficient identification of PNe candidates.
