[52.10] BVI Photometry and the Luminosity Function of M92

N. E. Q Paust, B Chaboyer (Dartmouth College)

We present BVI observations of the Galactic globular cluster M92 obtained with the 2.4m Hiltner telescope at the MDM Observatory. The observations were conducted under good seeing conditions and cover a region 34 arcminutes square. Accurate photometry is presented for over 23,000 stars including nearly 4000 stars brighter than the main sequence turn-off. We also present luminosity functions derived from the ground-based data and Hubble Space Telescope observations and compare them with theoretical models.
