CCD photometry of the globular cluster ω Centauri. II. Stellar populations and age-metallicity relation. Rey S.-C., Lee Y.-W., Ree C.H., Joo J.-M., Sohn Y.-J., Walker A.R. <Astron. J., 127, 958-979 (2004)> =2004AJ....127..958R

The member stars of ω Cen are well discriminated from foreground Galactic field stars in the hk[=(Ca-b)-(b-y)] versus b-y diagram. The resulting "cleaned" color-magnitude diagram (CMD) has allowed us to obtain an accurate distribution of the red horizontal-branch (HB) and the asymptotic giant branch stars. Description: All the observations were made using the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) 0.9m telescope and Tektronix 2048 No. 3 CCD during six nights of an observing run in 1996 April 5-10. Here, only selected stars with a frame-to-frame errors in the B and V magnitudes of less than 0.05mag are presented. The full data table will be published in a forthcoming paper.
