Exploring the nature and synchronicity of early cluster formation in the Large Magellanic Cloud - II. Relative ages and distances for six ancient globular clusters
We analyse Hubble Space Telescope observations of six globular clusters in the Large Magel-lanic Cloud (LMC) from programme GO-14164 in Cycle 23. These are the deepest available observations of the LMC globular cluster population; their uniformity facilitates a precise comparison with globular clusters in the Milky Way. Measuring the magnitude of the main-sequence turn-off point relative to template Galactic globular clusters allows the relative ages of the clusters to be determined with a mean...[Show more]
