Abstract: We present preliminary spectrophotometric results for Galactic Planetary Nebulae (PNe) in the Macquarie/AAO/Strasbourg H-alpha Planetary Nebulae Catalogue (MASH) (Parker et al. 2006). MASH PNe generally represent the more evolved end of the luminosity function than previous catalogues due to the inherent depth and resolution of the data. Excitation classes are derived for the sample from the new available spectroscopy and confirm trends established by Reid & Parker (2006). The excitation classes are compared to other observed PNe properties such as morphology, electron density and Galactic location.
