UBVRI and Hα photometry of the young open cluster NGC 6530.


Abstract (from CDS):

New UBVRI and Hα photometry has been obtained for the young open cluster NGC 6530 located 10' east of the Lagoon Nebula (M8). We found 37 pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars with Hα emission and nine PMS candidates using the R-Hα color, a measure of Hα emission. From this new photometry we derived the cluster parameters (V0-MV=11.25±0.1 mag and <E(B-V)≥0.35 mag), typical age (1.5 Myr), and an age spread of about 5 Myr. We confirmed the presence of a small amount of differential reddening across the cluster. We also verified the abnormal reddening law for the cluster, especially for a heavily embedded O7 V star, Herschel 36. Comparisons were made for several PMS evolution models with regard to the resulting age distribution and the initial mass function.
