A FOSSIL BULGE GLOBULAR CLUSTER REVEALED BY VERY LARGE TELESCOPE MULTI-CONJUGATE ADAPTIVE OPTICS
(IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2011)
The globular cluster HP 1 is projected on the bulge, very close to the Galactic center. The Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics Demonstrator on the Very Large Telescope allowed us to acquire high-resolution deep images that, ...
Homogeneous metallicities and radial velocities for Galactic globular clusters
(EDP SCIENCES S ALES ULIS CEDEX A, 2012)
Well determined radial velocities and abundances are essential for analyzing the properties of the globular cluster system of the Milky Way. However more than 50% of these clusters have no spectroscopic measure of their ...
Discovery of VVV CL001 A low-mass globular cluster next to UKS 1 in the direction of the Galactic bulge
(EDP SCIENCES S A, 2011)
Context. It is not known how many globular clusters may remain undetected towards the Galactic bulge. Aims. One of the aims of the VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) Survey is to accurately measure the physical ...
Large-scale study of the NGC 1399 globular cluster system in Fornax
(EDP Sciences, 2006-06)
We present a Washington C and Kron-Cousins R photometric study of the globular cluster system of NGC 1399, the central galaxy of the Fornax cluster. A large areal coverage of 1 square degree around NGC 1399 is achieved ...
The globular clusters-stellar haloes connection in early-type galaxies
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2009-08)
This paper explores if, and to what an extent, the stellar populations of early-type galaxies can be traced through the colour distribution of their globular cluster (GC) systems. The analysis, based on a galaxy sample ...
A survey for dwarf galaxy remnants around 14 globular clusters in the outer halo
(Oxford University Press, 2018-06)
We report the results of a systematic photometric survey of the peripheral regions of a sample of 14 globular clusters in the outer halo of the Milky Way at distances d(GC) > 25 kpc from the Galactic Centre. The survey is ...
