J/A+A/308/733       NTT VI photometry in Terzan 5  (Ortolani+ 1996)

NTT VI photometry of the metal-rich and obscured bulge globular cluster Terzan 5. Ortolani S., Barbuy B., Bica E. <Astron. Astrophys. 308, 733 (1996)> =1996A&A...308..733O (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry Keywords: globular clusters: individual: Terzan 5; general - HR diagram Description: We study the metal-rich bulge globular cluster Terzan 5 by means of VI colour-magnitude diagrams, with images obtained under exceptional seeing conditions (0.34"-0.50"). Differential reddening is important across the cluster. We derive a reddening of E(B-V)=2.49 and a distance from the Sun d=5.6kpc, closer than previous estimates. Based on the red giant branch curvature, we derive a metallicity somewhat higher than that of NGC 6553, probably solar.
