J/AJ/137/3100 and Battaglia et al., 2011, Cat. J/MNRAS/411/1013) with updated membership probabilities. Description: The observations took place between March 18 and 23 2015 in visitor mode with the instrument DECam on the 4m Blanco telescope at the CTIO (PI: B. McMonigal). DECam is a widefield CCD imager containing 62 2048x4096 pixel CCDs, producing images with a field of view of 2.2-degrees at 0.263-arcsecond/pixel resolution. We refer the reader to the associated manuscript for the complete description of the observations, data reduction, target selection and assigned membership probabilities. File Summary:
