Stroemgren photometry of the open clusters NGC 6134 and. NGC 3680.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present Stroemgren photometry of the two southern open clusters NGC 6134 and NGC 3680. The field of NGC 6134 was observed with different shifts of the telescope and rotations of the CCD camera in order to detect and remove any large scale flat field errors using the technique described by Andersen et al. (1995, Eso Conf. & Work. Proc., 53, 87). By using calibrations of the Stroemgren indices we find the metallicity and interstellar reddening of the clusters: For NGC 6134 the results are [Fe/H]=0.28±0.02 and E(b-y)=0.263±0.004 and for NGC 3680 we find [Fe/H]=0.09±0.02 and E(b-y)=0.048±0.011. When comparing the observed colour-magnitude diagrams theoretical isochrones we find that models which include overshooting in the convective cores agree with the extended hook after the turnoff. From the isochrone fit we find ages of 0.69±0.10Gyr and 1.45±0.15Gyr for NGC 6134 and NGC 3680 respectively. Stroemgren photometry of six known δ Scuti stars in NGC 6134 is presented.
