J/A+A/416/917  Revised Bologna Catalog of M31 globular clusters (Galleti+, 2004)

2MASS NIR photometry for 693 candidate globular clusters in M31 and the Revised Bologna Catalogue. Galleti S., Federici L., Bellazzini M., Fusi Pecci F., Macrina S. <Astron. Astrophys. 416, 917 (2004)> =2004A&A...416..917G
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry, infrared ; Photometry, UBVRI Keywords: galaxies: individual: M31 - galaxies: star clusters - infrared: general - catalogs Abstract: We have identified in the 2MASS database 693 known and candidate globular clusters in M31. The 2MASS J,H,K magnitudes of these objects have been transformed to the same homogeneous photometric system of existing near infrared photometry of M31 globulars, finally yielding J,H,K integrated photometry for 279 confirmed M31 clusters, 406 unconfirmed candidates and 8 objects with controversial classification. Of these objects 529 lacked any previous estimate of their near infrared magnitudes. The newly assembled near infrared dataset has been implemented into a revised version of the Bologna Catalogue of M31 globulars, with updated optical (UBVRI) photometry taken, when possible, from the most recent sources of CCD photometry available in the literature and transformed to a common photometric system. The final Revised Bologna Catalogue (table 2) most comprehensive list presently available of confirmed and candidate M31 globular clusters, with a total of 1164 entries. In particular, it includes 337 confirmed GCs, 688 GC candidates, 10 objects with controversial classification, 70 confirmed galaxies, 55 confirmed stars, and 4 HII regions. Using the newly assembled database we show that the V-K color provides a powerful tool to discriminate between M31 clusters and background galaxies, and we identify a sample of 83 globular cluster candidates, which is not likely to be contaminated by misclassified galaxies.
