We have analyzed the properties of young stars in two fields in Cyg OB2 using the recently published deep catalog of Chandra X-ray point sources with complementary optical and near-IR photometry. Our sample is complete to ∼1M (excluding A- and B-type stars that do not emit X-rays), making this the deepest study of the stellar properties and star formation history in Cyg OB2 to date. Combining our stellar mass function (MF) and an estimate of the radial density profile of the association suggests a total mass of Cyg OB2 of ∼3x104M, similar to that of many of our Galaxy's most massive SFRs. Description: In this paper, we present an analysis and discussion of the stellar properties of sources in Cygnus OB2 taken from the X-ray derived catalog presented by Wright & Drake (2009, Paper I, Cat. J/ApJS/184/84). File Summary:
