Nir surface photometry of star-forming regions

  • 20 Accesses


We present a set of maps of the star-forming regions S140, Re 50, and Mon R2 in theJ, H, andK infrared bands (i.e., 1.2, 1.65, and 2.2 μm), obtained with a resolution of 7 and 14 arc sec at the infrared 1.5 m TIRGO telescope, with the TIRGO InSb single channel photometer operating in a mapping mode.
