J/BaltA/12/301  Vilnius photometry in Barnard 1            (Cernis+, 2003)

Interstellar extinction in the direction of the Barnard 1 dark cloud in Perseus. Cernis K., Straizys V. <Baltic Astronomy, 12, 301-321 (2003)> =2003BaltA..12..301C
ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds ; Photometry, Vilnius Keywords: techniques: photometric: Vilnius photometric system - stars: fundamental parameters, classification - ISM: extinction, dust clouds - ISM: individual objects: Barnard 1 Abstract: Spectral and luminosity classes, absolute magnitudes. color excesses, interstellar extinctions and distances are determined for 98 stars down to 13mag in the Barnard 1 dark cloud belonging to the Per OB2 association. The classification of stars is based on their photoelectric photometry in the Vilnius seven-color photometric system. The extinction vs. distance diagram exhibits the presence of two dust layers at 150 and 230pc distances. The distance of the first cloud, which gives an extinction AV of 0.3mag, coincides with the distance of the Taurus dark cloud complex. The second cloud with much larger extinction is about at the same distance as the clouds in the direction of the nearby objects: reflection nebula NGC 1333 and open cluster IC 348. Description: Photometry of stars was obtained by one of the authors (K. Cernis) with the 1 meter telescope at the Maidanak Observatory in Uzbekistan during three observing runs (1992, 1994 and 1996).

Note (1): The classification is of the best quality when sQ=0.01mag. If sQ≥0.03, the star is peculiar or accuracy of its photometry is low. Q,Q stands for the G8-K5 type stars which were classified by the interstellar reddening-free QXZS,QXYZ or QUPY,QXZS diagrams.
