The highest-resolution near-IR observation of Trumpler 15 (taken by the HAWK-I instrument on the Very Large Telescope) was found to detect most of our X-ray selected sample of cluster members, with a K-excess disk frequency of 3.8%±0.7%. The near-IR data, XLF, and published spectral types of the brightest members support a cluster age estimate (5-10Myr) that is older than those for the nearby Trumpler 14 and Trumpler 16 clusters, and suggest that high-mass members may have already exploded as supernovae. The morphology of the inner ∼0.7pc core of the cluster is found to be spherical. However, the outer regions (beyond ∼2pc) are elongated, forming an "envelope" of stars that, in projection, appears to connect Trumpler 15 to Trumpler 14; this morphology supports the view that these clusters are physically associated. Clear evidence of mass segregation is seen. This study appears in this special issue devoted to the Chandra Carina Complex Project, a 1.42deg2 Chandra X-ray survey of the Great Nebula in Carina. Description: Trumpler 15 was observed as part of the CCCP (Townsley et al., 2011ApJS..194....1T), a large mosaic of Chandra Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer I-array (ACIS-I) observations. One CCCP pointing (ObsID 9484, a 60ks integration obtained on 2008 August 19) is centered on Trumpler 15; five other pointings cover the edges of the cluster (Figure 1(a)). File Summary:

Note (3): A set of mutually exclusive classification hypotheses defined for each source in Broos et al. (2011, Cat. J/ApJS/194/4) as follows: H0 = source is unclassified; H1 = source is a foreground main-sequence star; H2 = source is a young star, assumed to be in the Carina complex; H3 = source is a Galactic background main-sequence star; H4 = source is extragalactic.
