J/AcA/49/521  OGLE LMC star clusters BVI photometry (Pietrzynski+, 1999)

The Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment. Catalog of star clusters from the Large Magellanic Cloud. Pietrzynski G., Udalski A., Kubiak M., Szymanski M., Wozniak P., Zebrun K. <Acta Astron., 49, 521 (1999)> =1999AcA....49..521P
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Associations, stellar ; Photometry Keywords: Magellanic Clouds - galaxies: star clusters - catalogs - atlases Abstract: We present the catalog of star clusters found in the area of about 5.8 square degree in the central regions of the Large Magellanic Cloud. It contains data for 745 clusters. 126 of them are new objects. For each cluster equatorial coordinates, radius, approximate number of members and cross-identification are provided. Photometric data for all clusters presented in the catalog and Atlas consisting of finding charts and color-magnitude diagrams are available electronically from the OGLE Internet archive at URL: File Summary:
