This region includes most of the sigma Ori cluster, the highest-density region within Orion OB1b. We have developed a statistical procedure to identify the young, low-mass, pre-main-sequence population of the association. We estimate that the cluster has 160 members in the mass range (0.2M≤M≤1.0M). The cluster has a radius of 35pc and an estimated age of 2.5±0.3Myr. We estimate that the total mass of the cluster is 225±30M. This mass is similar to the estimated mass of the ∼5x105yr old cluster NGC 2024. NGC 2024 and sigma Ori appear to be a well-matched pair of clusters, except for the ∼2Myr difference in their ages. Description: In this paper we analyze data from observations made with the 0.9 and 1.5m telescopes at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) between 1996 and 2002 as part of a B, V, RC, and IC survey of the belt of Orion (Orion OB1b) File Summary:

Note (1): Colors and bolometric correction for stars earlier than M7 were taken from Kenyon & Hartmann (1995, Cat. J/ApJS/101/117>). For stars later than M7 we used U-V, B-V, and V-Rc from Berriman et al. (1992ApJ...392L..31B) and V-Ic, V-J, V-H, V-K, V-L and bolometric corrections from Leggett et al. (2001ApJ...548..908L). Note (2): Teff for M stars are from Luhman (1999ApJ...525..466L).
