That and the general hazy interiors of PNs require good definition to be able to separate the star from the background in so many of them. Maybe like the moons of Saturn. All you need to do is smear the light the tiniest bit and it is gone.

It's interesting that atmospheric seeing makes a huge difference is detecting the central stars in PnE. Probably because the magnification can be pushed to the absolute limit.
