|Figure 2: MeWe1-5. The PN is very faint and appears just above the background. Its central star cannot be identified|
On our images, MeWe1-5 appears just above the background with a faint arc on the western side (Fig.2). MeWe1-8 (Fig.3) and MeWe1-9 (Fig.4) are circular PNe with no distinct central hole.
Although the central star of MeWe1-5 has a brightness mB=20.6 (Melmer & Weinberger 1990) which is not much fainter than that of the central star of MeWe1-8 (mB=20.3), it can, in contrast, not be identified on our narrow-band images. In the case of MeWe1-9, we cannot identify its central star (mB=21.9), too.
