J/PASP/117/22          NGC 6318 CCD BVI photometry               (Piatti+, 2005)

A CCD BVI photometric study of the young, highly reddened open cluster NGC 6318. Piatti A.E., Claria J.J., Ahumada A.V. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac., 117, 22-31 (2005)> =2005PASP..117...22P
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Photometry, UBVRI ; Photometry, CCD Abstract: We present CCD BVI photometry for the southern open cluster NGC 6318. The sample consists of 9876 stars measured in an area of 13.6'x13.6', extending down to V∼21.5mag. Star counts carried out within and outside the cluster region allowed us to estimate the cluster angular radius as 8'. Description: CCD images of the cluster field were obtained with the Johnson B and V and Kron-Cousins I filters using the 0.9m telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO; Chile) on 1998 June 17-18.
