J/AcA/48/175         OGLE SMC clusters                (Pietrzynski+ 1998)

Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment. The catalog of clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud. Pietrzynski G., Udalski A., Kubiak M., Szymanski M., Wozniak P., Zebrun K. <Acta Astron., 48, 175 (1998)> =1998AcA....48..175P (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Clusters, open ; Photometry, UBVRI Keywords: Magellanic Clouds - clusters, general - catalogs - atlas Abstract: We present the catalog of clusters found in the area of ∼2.4 square degrees in the central region of the Small Magellanic Cloud. The catalog contains data for 238 clusters, 72 of them are new objects. For each cluster equatorial coordinates, radii, approximate number of members, cross-identification, finding chart and color magnitude diagrams: V-(B-V) and V-(V-I) are provided. File Summary:
