In this paper we describe the observations and data reduction procedures for the survey and analyze the stellar content and dynamical state of the cluster. By combining high-resolution spectroscopy with existing BVICK_s and new gri color-magnitude diagrams, we determine the fundamental cluster parameters: t=485±28Myr, without overshooting (t=550±30Myr, with overshooting), E(B-V)=0.227±0.038, (m-M)V=11.57±0.13, and [M/H]=+0.045±0.044, which are in good agreement with, although more precise than, previous measurements. We determine the mass function down to 0.3M and use this to estimate the total cluster mass of 3640±170M. Description: The photometric observations were obtained over 24 nights (8 of which were half-nights) between 2005 December 21 and 2006 January 21. We obtained a total of ∼5000 images using the Megacam instrument on the MMT. The color transformations are applied to the full star list to yield a final list with magnitudes on the Sloan system.
