The bipolar jets associated with the planetary nebulae NGC 2392 and NGC 6543


NGC 2392 and NGC 5443 are two complex planetary nebulae where bipolar jets have been detected. We have carried out detailed long-slit spectroscopic studies of these two hebulae. In this work, results obtained for the bipolar jets are presented. In particular, their kinematical properties and excitation conditions have been deduced.
