J/A+A/381/941  HST photometry of stars in N160A        (Heydari-Malayeri+, 2002)

Resolving the compact HII regions in N160A with HST. Heydari-Malayeri M., Charmandaris V., Deharveng L., Meynadier F., Rosa M.R., Schaerer D., Zinnecker H. <Astron. Astrophys. 381, 941 (2002)> =2002A&A...381..941H

The two compact high excitation 2 blobs (HEBs) A1 and A2 are for the first time resolved and their stellar content and morphology is revealed. A1, being of higher excitation, is powered by a single massive star whose strong wind has created a surrounding bubble. A2 harbors several exciting stars enshrouded by large quantities of dust. The whole N160A nebula is energized by three star clusters for which we obtain photometry and study their color-magnitude diagram. The 2 region is particularly dusty, with extinction values reaching an AV∼2.5mag in the visible, and it is separated from the molecular cloud by an outstanding ionization front. A previously detected infrared young stellar object is also accurately located with respect to the 2 region (N160A). File Summary:
