would be nice to see a panchromatic gallery with a list of the temperature of the central PN star. They should get smaller & hotter with time and may go through one or mor slow nova flares as the last of the H & He in the plasma migrates to the surface & chain reaction fuses lofting the outer layer.
With the Eskimo nebula this may in fact have happened. No sign of Ansae in the eskimo nebula so the turbulent plasma in the outer layers of the * has likely not yet collapsed down to form a true (hot) WD.
Have a nice day: Ag
