J/AJ/121/3114      UBVR photometry of NGC 6712 with VLT     (Paltrinieri+, 2001)

VLT observations of the peculiar globular cluster NGC 6712. III. The evolved stellar population. Paltrinieri B., Ferraro F.R., Paresce F., de Marchi G. <Astron. J. 121, 3114 (2001)> =2001AJ....121.3114P
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry, UBVRI Keywords: globular clusters: individual (NGC 6712) - stars: evolution - stars: Population II Abstract: We present extensive UBVR photometry of the Galactic globular cluster (GGC) NGC 6712 obtained with the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) which reaches down to 2 mag below the main-sequence turn-off and allows us for the first time to determine the age of this cluster.
