J/AJ/134/447     Catalog of star cluster candidates in M 33  (Sarajedini+, 2007)

A catalog of star cluster candidates in M 33. Sarajedini A., Mancone C.L. <Astron. J., 134, 447-456 (2007)> =2007AJ....134..447S
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Associations, stellar ; Photometry Keywords: galaxies: individual (M33) - galaxies: spiral - galaxies: star clusters Abstract: We present a new catalog of star cluster candidates in the nearby spiral galaxy M33. It is based on eight existing catalogs wherein we have cross-referenced identifications and endeavored to resolve inconsistencies between them. Our catalog contains 451 candidates, of which 255 are confirmed clusters based on Hubble Space Telescope and high-resolution ground-based imaging. The catalog contains precise cluster positions (right ascension and declination), magnitudes and colors in the UBVRIJHKS filters, metallicities, radial velocities, masses and ages, where available, and galactocentric distances for each cluster.
