Abstract

Prints of the Palomar Sky Survey covering regions with |b| > 10° and δ > — 3° were searched without optical magnification for large, low-surface-brightness objects. Among the objects found are six new certain or suspected planetary nebulae (one with a diameter of ~ 12') and a shell surrounding a previously unknown nova-like variable star. Three additional nebulae or galaxies with exceptionally low surface brightnesses are also listed; some of them could be nearby dwarf spheroidal galaxies.
