J/BaltA/17/125      Interstellar reddening in 3 HII regions    (Straizys+, 2008)

2MASS two-color interstellar reddening line in the direction of the North America and Pelican nebulae and the Cyg OB2 association. Straizys V., Corbally C.J., Laugalys V. <Baltic Astron., 17, 125-142 (2008)> =2008BaltA..17..125S
ADC_Keywords: H II regions ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: ISM: extinction, clouds: individual (L 935) - ISM: H II regions: individual (North America Nebula, Pelican Nebula) - associations: individual (Cyg OB2) - stars: fundamental parameters Abstract: The slope of the interstellar reddening line in the J-H vs. H-Ks diagram of the 2MASS survey in the direction of the North America and Pelican nebulae, the L 935 dust cloud and the Cyg OB2 association is determined. The MK types were either classified by C.J. Corbally or collected from the literature. The ratio E(J-H)/E(H-Ks)=2.0 is obtained by taking the average for the four groups of spectral classes: O3-B1, B2-B6, B7-B9.5 and red clump giants. The obtained ratio is among the largest values of E(J-H)/E(H-Ks) determined till now. File Summary:
