[22.17] WIYN Open Cluster Study MOSAIC Photometry of M38

D. J. Denmark, A. Sarajedini (University of Florida), C. P. Deliyannis, J. Cummings, H. Jacobson (Indiana University)

We present high-precision BVI CCD photometry of the open cluster M38 using the 1 degree field of the MOSAIC instrument on the WIYN 0.9m telescope. These data have been obtained as part of the WIYN Open Cluster Study. We have also combined our data with JHK photometry from the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). Using this combination of optical and near-IR data, we will present revised values for the reddening, metallicity, distance, and age of the cluster. This research is supported by NSF grant AST-0196212 to A. Sarajedini.
