FSR0190: another old distant Galactic cluster.


Abstract (from CDS):

We are conducting a large programme to classify newly discovered Milky Way star cluster candidates from Froebrich et al. Here we present near-infrared follow-up observations of FSR0190 (J2000). The cluster is situated close to the Galactic plane. It shows a circular shape, and a relatively large number of core helium burning stars - which clearly distinguishes the cluster from the rich field - but no centrally condensed star density profile. We derive an age of more than 7 Gyr, a Galactocentric distance of 10.5 kpc, a distance of 10 kpc from the Sun, and an extinction of AK= 0.8 mag. The estimated mass is at least of the order of 105M, and the absolute brightness is MV≤ -4.7 mag; both are rather typical properties for Palomar-type globular clusters.
