The nature of the star clusters ESO 93-SC08 and ESO 452-SC11.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present V and I colour-magnitude diagrams of the star clusters ESO 93-SC08 and ESO 452-SC11. Both clusters are poorly populated, and the colour-magnitude diagrams show that ESO 93-SC08 is an intermediate age open cluster, while ESO 452-SC11 is confirmed as a globular cluster. The magnitude difference between the turnoff and the clump/horizontal branch indicates an age of 4-5Gyr for ESO 93-SC08, while ESO 452-SC11 has an age comparable to the average of the halo globular clusters. ESO 93-SC08 has a reddening of E(B-V)=0.64 and is located at d≃13.7kpc from the Sun. It is a distant open cluster in the outer disk. ESO 452-SC11 appears to be a southern counterpart of the Palomar clusters. We derive a reddening of E(B-V)=0.58, a distance d≃6.5kpc and a metallicity [Fe/H]≃-1.5 for ESO 452-SC08. The deep CMD shows evidence of depletion at the lower main sequence, similarly to other poorly populated globular clusters.
