Resumen

Mediante fotometría de 75 estrellas en la dirección de NGC 7063 se ha determinado la membresía de algunas estrellas, establecido su distancia (722 ± 105 pc), su edad (log edad de 8.146) y su enrojecimiento (E(b y) = 0.091 ± 0.039 mag).

 

Abstract

From uvby photometry of 75 stars in the direction of NGC 7063 we were able to determine membership of some stars and fix the distance (722 ±105 pc), log age (8.146) and reddening (E(b y) = 0.091 ± 0.039 mag) for the cluster.
