J/A+A/351/526       NGC 2172 CCD BVI photometry                  (Ripepi+, 1999)

CCD photometry of young MC clusters. I: NGC 2172. Ripepi V., Brocato E., Castellani V. <Astron. Astrophys. 351, 526 (1999)> =1999A&A...351..526R
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Clusters, open ; Photometry, CCD Keywords: stars: evolution - stars: fundamental parameters - stars: luminosity function, mass function - galaxies: Magellanic Clouds - galaxies: star clusters Abstract: We present a new CCD photometry for the young LMC cluster NGC 2172, giving B, V, I magnitudes for more than 600 stars within 70" from the cluster center, down to -approximately- V=21mag. After correction for completeness and field stars contamination, we discuss the cluster HR diagram and the MS luminosity function in the light of current evolutionary theories and in connection with the problem of cluster age. Description: Observations were carried out in the BV and iGunn filters during November 1996 with the 0.9m. "Dutch" telescope at ESO (La Silla, Chile). The telescope was equipped with a TEK 512x512 pixels CCD (ESO #33); the scale was 0.44 arcsec/pixel, with a total field of about 3.8 arcmin.
