About this Image

Water maser and OH maser emission in the planetary nebula K3-35 (figure adapted from Miranda et al. 2001). The color images show the 3.6 cm and 1.3 cm (inset) continuum emission, which trace the ionized nebular material. A bright core, with an incipient hour-glass morphology at 1.3 cm, and two bipolar lobes, whose brightest parts correspond to the precessing bipolar jet, can be distinguished. Red dots in the figure represent the positions of the H20 maser spots. The detailed spatio-kinematical structure and the spectra of the water maser emission are shown in the panels for the four regions (N, C, S1 and S2) in which water emission is detected. The blue crosses mark the positions of the OH 1665 MHz maser spots, and the yellow triangles mark the positions of the OH 1667 MHz maser spots. The peak position of the 1.3 cm continuum emission, at R.A. (2000) = 19 h 27 m 44.023 s and Dec (2000) = 21°30'3.44"
