Has a planetary nebula ever been imaged OUTSIDE our Milky Way in another galaxy?

You might follow the links to this (http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2006ASPC..357..157B) paper.
This is about Planetaries in the LMC and SMC. I'm sure they've been observed in other nearby galaxies as well.
Why do you ask? Do you have an idea you're exploring?

Indeed they have been observed in other galaxies, and have been used to obtain the kinematics of early-type galaxies. See this (http://adsabs.harvard.edu/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2966.2009.14417.x) abstract, for examples. There is even a planetary nebulae spectrograph!

All them other galaxies ain't no different than us, hoss...
(well OK, some are a BIT different, but lets not be TOO picky)
.... but they're all built to the same rules of the Universe as us...
