J. H. Peña, R. Peniche, R. Garrido, M. Paparo, A. García-Cole


Unpublished uvby-β photoelectric photometry of the open cluster NGC 6882/5 is presented. Utilizing already tested distance determinations through photometric techniques, it is found that there are at least two distinct star accumulations in the direction of the open cluster NGC 6882/5. A brief discussion is made of the nature of the previously found short period variables.


open clusters and associations: general; open clusters and associations: individual (NGC 6882/5); stars: variables; techniques: photometric
