Fiorentino, G; Tolstoy, Eline; Diolaiti, E; Valenti, E; Cignoni, M; Mackey, Alasdair

Description

We present J,H,Ks photometry from the the Multi conjugate Adaptive optics Demonstrator (MAD), a visitor instrument at the VLT, of a resolved stellar population in a small crowded field in the bar of the Large Magellanic Cloud near the globular cluster NGC 1928. In a total exposure time of 6, 36 and 20 min, magnitude limits were achieved of J ∼ 20.5 mag, H ∼ 21 mag, and Ks ∼ 20.5 mag respectively, with S/N > 10. This does not reach the level of the oldest Main Sequence Turnoffs, however the...[Show more]
