The Large Magellanic Cloud globular cluster NGC 1866: new data, new models, new analysis. Testa V., Ferraro F.R., Chieffi A., Straniero O., Limongi M., Fusi Pecci F. <Astron. J. 118, 2839 (1999)> =1999AJ....118.2839T
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Clusters, globular ; Photometry, UBV Keywords: color-magnitude diagrams - galaxies: star clusters - Magellanic Clouds Abstract: We present a new deep (down to V∼24) photometry of a wide region (∼6'x6') around the Large Magellanic Cloud globular cluster NGC 1866. Our sample is much larger (by more than a factor of 3) than any previous photometry and with a main sequence (MS) that may be considered complete, down to at least 3 mag below the brightest MS star; such an occurrence allows a meaningful and robust comparison with various theoretical scenarios produced by means of models computed with the evolutionary code FRANEC.
