Beginning of ReadMe : J/A+A/559/A98 JK photometry in BUL_SC9 and BUL_SC29 (Valenti+, 2013) ================================================================================ Stellar ages through the corners of the boxy bulge. Valenti E., Zoccali M., Renzini A., Brown T.M., Gonzalez O., Minniti D., Debattista V.P., Mayer L. <Astron. Astrophys. 559, A98 (2013)> =2013A&A...559A..98V ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Milky Way ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: Galaxy: bulge - Galaxy: formation - methods: observational - techniques: photometric Abstract: In some scenarios for the formation of the Milky Way bulge, the stellar population at the edges of the boxy bulge may be younger than those on the minor axis or close to the Galactic center. So far the only bulge region where deep color-magnitude diagrams have been obtained is indeed along the minor axis. To overcome this limitation, we aim to age-date the bulge stellar populations far away from the bulge minor axis. Color-magnitude diagrams and luminosity functions have been obtained from deep near-IR VLT/HAWK-I images taken at the two Southern corners of the boxy bulge, i.e., near the opposite edges of the Galactic bar. The foreground disk contamination has been statistically removed using a pure disk field observed with the same instrument and located approximately at similar Galactic latitudes of the two bulge fields and  30deg in longitude away from the Galactic center. For each bulge field, mean reddening and distance are determined using the position of red clump stars, and the metallicity distribution is derived photometrically using the color distribution of stars in the upper red giant branch. Description: Photometric catalogues of two bulge fields located at the edge of the edge of the Galactic bar. The J and K magnitudes have been calibrated onto the 2MASS photometric system. The position of the detected sources has been astrometrized by using 2MASS catalogs.
