J/A+A/326/614       Terzan 2 VI photometry         (Ortolani+ 1997)

V, I photometry of the metal-rich bulge globular cluster Terzan 2 Ortolani S., Bica E., Barbuy B. <Astron. Astrophys. 326, 614 (1997)> =1997A&A...326..614O (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry, CCD Keywords: Globular clusters: individual: Terzan 2 - HR diagram - Galaxy: abundances - Galaxy: center Abstract: We present for the first time optical colour magnitude diagrams of the globular cluster Terzan 2, in the V, I colours. The horizontal branch is red. The red giant branch morphology can be fitted with that of 47 Tuc, but definitely not th at of NGC 6553. We derive a reddening of E(B-V)=1.54 and a distance d=7.7kpc if R=3.1, or 5.3kpc if R=3.6. Terzan 2 adds to the list of bulge metal-rich clusters now with reliable parameters.
