J/AJ/125/1383       Stromgren photometry of NGC 6253     (Anthony-Twarog+, 2003)

CCD uvbyCaHβ photometry of clusters. III. The most metal-rich open cluster, NGC 6253. Twarog B.A., Anthony-Twarog B.J., de Lee N. <Astron. J. 125, 1383 (2003)> =2003AJ....125.1383T

Despite a high level of field star contamination because of its location toward the Galactic center, combination of the data from the multiple color indices with the core cluster sample derived from radial star counts leads to the identification of a set of highly probable, single cluster members. Description: The new photometric data for NGC 6253 were obtained using the Cassegrain focus CCD imager on the National Optical Astronomy Observatory's 0.9m telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory.
