Abstract (from CDS):

Photometry in the BVI and JHK bands is presented for the first time for the southern open clusters Danks 1 and 2, located in the Centaurus region. They are relatively rich and compact, and projected at approximately 4 arcmin from each other. The clusters are very reddened, with AV= 8.1±0.45 and 9.3±0.6, respectively. They are young clusters, with ages of approximately 10 Myr, and may be related to the 305° HII region complex in the area. Distances from the Sun of d~ 3.6±0.5 and 3.4±0.2 kpc are derived for Danks 1 and 2. They might form a physical cluster pair.
