Characterizing the stellar population of NGC 1980. Kounkel M., Hartmann L., Calvet N., Megeath T. <Astron. J., 154, 29-29 (2017)> =2017AJ....154...29K (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Spectral types ; Equivalent widths Keywords: ISM: individual objects: NGC 1980 - stars: pre-main sequence Abstract: NGC1980 is a young cluster that is located about 0.5° south of the Orion Nebula Cluster (ONC). Recent studies by Bouy et al. and Pillitteri et al. have suggested that NGC1980 contains an older population of stars compared to a much younger ONC, and that it belongs to a foreground population that may be located in front of the Orion A molecular gas by as much as 40pc. In this work, we present low-resolution spectra toward 148 young stars found toward the NGC1980 region. We determine the spectral types of these stars, examine accretion signatures and measure the extinction toward them. We determine that based on these observations, the age of the population of NGC1980 is indistinguishable from L1641, estimated to be ∼3Myr, comparable with the study by Fang et al. Description: We conducted observations using the Inamori-Magellan Areal Camera and Spectrograph (IMACS) on the Magellan Baade telescope. Observations were done using the f/2 camera with the 300 line grism at a blaze angle of 17.5° and slit width of 0.6". In this configuration, the typical resolution is 4Å, and the spectral coverage is approximately 4000-9000Å. We observed four fields toward NGC1980 using the multi-slit mode on 2016 January 7. We targeted 280 sources identified by Bouy et al. 2014 (Cat. J/A+A/564/A29) with r<21mag, of which 212 sources had probabilities of membership (P) greater than 50%. The exposure time was 5*10 minutes per field for the first three fields, and the last field had the exposure time of 8*10 minutes. The weather conditions deteriorated rapidly over the course of the night, therefore, while the first field had the full sensitivity, the last field, even with the increased exposure time, yielded little in terms of the number of sources detected. Partially because of this, we have detected only 148 sources (see Table1). File Summary:
