J/AJ/105/1441             IC 4665                                 (Prosser 1993)

The open cluster IC 4665 PROSSER C.F. <Astron. J. 105, 1441 (1993)> =1993AJ....105.1441P
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open; Positional data; Photometry, UBVRI; Spectroscopy Abstract: The results of a combined astrometric, photometric, and spectroscopic program to identify members of the open cluster IC 4665 are presented. Numerous new proper motion/photometric candidate members and at least 23 M dwarfs with H-alpha emission have been identified. A reanalysis of IC 4665's age using different methods yields conflicting results ranging from approx. 3x107 yr to the age of the Pleiades. This study provides a list of candidate cluster members in the intermediate and low-mass regime of this cluster. Future spectroscopic observations of these candidates should eventually identify true cluster members. The results of new echelle observations of some candidates and the photometric monitoring of one apparent cluster member are given in an appendix. File Summary:

Note(1): A proper motion membership probability has been determined from gaussian fitting to the cluster and field proper motion distributions - however the reader is advised not to attach great weight to the probabilities calculated due to the high contamination of field stars found for this cluster. No proper motion membership probabilities were calculated for the Lick candidates in table2 due to the rough approximations made to correct for magnitude dependent effects in the proper motions during the analysis of the Lick 30min/1hr plate reductions.
