The Cluster Collaboration's Photometric Catalogues

This page is devoted to photometric catalogues we have created of young stellar associations and clusters. The catalogues have been created using the optimal photometry algorithm described in Naylor (1998) and Naylor et al (2002). Further information is also available from Tim Naylor's optimal photometry page. The catalogues are primarily in what is called cluster format, though there are occasional variations where they are needed. Examples of Fortran which reads these files are given on our code page.

Whole Sky data

Well, not actually produced by the cluster collaboration, but various surveys are available in cluster format through the eSTAR brokering service.

The Collaboration

These catalogues are the result of a collaboration between teams within the Exeter Astrophysics Group led by Tim Naylor, and the Keele Astrophysics Group led by Rob Jeffries. The contributors to the currently available catalogues are Darryl Sergison, Cameron Bell, Ben Burningham (now at Hertfordshire), Tina Devey, Mike Kenyon, Stuart Littlefair, Nathan Mayne, Joana Oliveira, Monica Pozzo (who moved to Imperial and is now at UCL), Simon Thompson and Ed Totten.
