The Macquarie/AAO/Strasbourg Hα Planetary Nebula Catalogue (MASH) contains 903 new true, likely and possible Galactic Planetary Nebulae (PNe) discovered from the AAO/UKST Hα survey of the southern Galactic plane. The combination of depth, resolution, uniformity, and areal coverage of the H {alpha}survey has opened up an hitherto unexplored region of parameter space permitting the detection of this significant new PN sample. This catalogue includes also the spectra of the PNe as FITS files (in the "sp" subdirectory), and a gallery of images created as a combination of the Hα and short red images of the survey. The second part, MASH-II (table mash2.dat) consists of over 300 true, likely and possible new Galactic PNe found after re-examination of the entire AAO/UKST Hα survey of the Southern Galactic Plane in digital form. Over 240 of these new candidates were confirmed as bona fide PNe on the basis of spectroscopic observations. The spectra of this supplement will be available in the future. (9 data files).
