New UBVRI photometry of 234 M33 star clusters.


Abstract (from CDS):

This is the second paper of our series. In this paper, we present UBVRI photometry for 234 star clusters in the field of M33. For most of these star clusters, there is photometry in only two bands in previous studies. The photometry of these star clusters is performed using archival images from the Local Group Galaxies Survey, which covers 0.8 deg2 along the major axis of M33. Detailed comparisons show that, in general, our photometry is consistent with previous measurements, and in particular that our photometry is in good agreement with that of Zloczewski & Kaluzny. Combined with star cluster photometry in previous studies, we present some results: none of the M33 youngest clusters (∼107 yr) have masses approaching 105 M, and comparisons with models of simple stellar populations suggest a large range of ages for M33 star clusters and some as old as the Galactic globular clusters.

CDS comments: 33-3-021 comes from Zloczewski & Kaluzny 2008 (not 2009). Star cluster 197 in Park & Lee 2007 should rather be star cluster 89, according to positions.
