That range of redshift, where only a small amount of data with the required resolution and quality is available, is particularly important for the understanding of the formation and evolution of clusters of galaxies. We have inspected the color-magnitude relation (CMR) for those clusters and measured the blue fraction of galaxies in their cores to check for evidence of evolution as found in other works. Visual classification of the galaxy morphology has been performed and the morphology-radius relation examined. Description: Two of us (M.M. and J.A.L.A.) imaged five galaxy clusters with the 2.5m Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) located at the Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory (La Palma). The observations were taken with the Stand Camera, with a field of view of 3'x3', a plate scale of 0.176"/pix, a gain of 1.69e-/ADU and a readout noise of 6.36e-. All images were taken under photometric sky conditions and very good seeing (between 0.5" and 0.8"). The clusters were observed through two broad-band filters: Gunn-r' (r) and Bessel B (B).
