We have analyzed ACS/WFC andWFPC2 images from HST, as well as ground-based data to study the radial distribution of the double sub-giant branch (SGB) recently discovered in the Galactic globular cluster NGC 1851. We found that the SGB split can be followed all the way from the cluster center out to at least 8′ from the center. Beyond this distance out to the tidal radius at ∼ 11.7 arcmin, there are simply too few SGB stars to identify the sequences. The number ratio of the bright SGB to the...[Show more]
