By using a combination of the information from the color-magnitude diagram (CMD) and the color-color diagrams, a sample of 98 highly probable main-sequence cluster members with high photometric accuracy is isolated. Description: Photoelectric photometry of IC 4651 on the uvbyHβ system obtained on the 0.9 and 1.5 m telescopes at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) between 1982 and 1985 was presented in Anthony-Twarog & Twarog (1987AJ.....94.1222A); this photometry was then used to calibrate a set of small-format CCD frames to further define the structure of the cluster at faint magnitudes. The photoelectric observations had been transformed to the standard system using the traditional technique of defining nightly calibration curves based upon standard star observations made on each night. The standard system adopted for those transformations was based upon local secondary uvby standards near the south Galactic pole (SGP) compiled by Twarog (1984AJ.....89..523T).
