J/AJ/134/2168       BVI photometry of M33 star clusters          (Park+, 2007)

A catalog of new M33 star clusters based on Hubble space telescope WFPC2 images. Park W.-K., Lee M.G. <Astron. J., 134, 2168-2178 (2007)> =2007AJ....134.2168P

We have found 104 star clusters, including 32 new ones, in the images of 24 fields that were not included in previous studies. Combining these with previous data in the literature, we increase the number of M33 star clusters found in the HST images to 242. We have derived BVI integrated photometry of these star clusters from the CCD images taken with the CFH12k mosaic camera at the CFHT. Description: We used WFPC2 images of M33 in the HST archive that were not used in the previous studies by Chandar et al. (1999, Cat. J/ApJS/122/431, 2001, Cat. J/A+A/366/498). The images were obtained using various filter combinations of F300W, F336W (U), F436W (B), F555W, F606W (V), and F814W (I). File Summary:

Note (1): Flags as follows: * = Magnitude and colors of the star cluster is measured on HST/WFPC2 image with r=2.2" and 1.0" apertures for V and color measurement, respectively instead of CFH12k mosaic CCD image with r=4.0" and r=2.0" apertures for V and color measurement, respectively. # = No photometry could be made from CFH12k mosaic CCD images nor HST/WFPC2 images Note (2): Flags as follows: : = the cluster is located near the edge of the CCD chip, leading to measurement was made with smaller apertures f = Happened to be off from CFHT CFH12k images Note (3): Measured with UBVRI PSF photometry data by Massey et al. (2006, Cat. J/AJ/131/2478). The uncertainties of the values are 0.05. Note (4): Identifications are abbreviated as: * B from Bedin et al. (2005, Cat. J/A+A/444/831), * CBF from Chandar et al.
