We present a catalog of planetary nebulae in the nearest giant elliptical galaxy NGC 5128. The catalog consists of positions and [O III] λ5007 magnitudes for 785 planetary nebulae. This is the second largest catalog of planetaries, next only to that of the Milky Way. We also list the coordinates of 32 bright stars from the Guide Star Catalog and 80 additional reference stars in the survey fields for astrometric reference during future observations. The positions of the planetary nebulae are accurate to 0″.2 with respect to the Guide Star Catalog in right ascension or declination.
