J/AJ/75/167         UBV sequences near 3 globulars           (White+, 1970)

Secondary UBV comparison stars near some Southern globular clusters. I. Stars brighter than 16th magnitude. White R.E. <Astron. J., 75, 167-168 (1970)> =1970AJ.....75..167W
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry, UBV Abstract: The results concerning photoelectrically observed UBV magnitudes and colors of bright to intermediately faint stars near three globular clusters (NGC 2808, 5927, and 6101) are assembled. Description: The observations were obtrained in May 1969, at the CTIO (Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory) 36-inch reflector; the 60-inch reflector was used got some of the fainter stars in NGC 5927. The identification and accurate positions of the stars studied in this paper was achieved by B. Skiff (Lowell Obs.) in October 2010 File Summary:
