RESUMEN

A partir de la fotometría fotoeléctrica uvby β de los cúmulos abiertos NGC 6811 (75 estrellas) y NGC 6830 (19 estrellas) realizamos la determinación de distancias y, por ende, la pertenencia de las estrellas a cada cúmulo. Asimismo, se determinaron la edad y el enrojecimiento de cada uno. Dado que recientemente se han determinado estrellas variables para el primero, realizamos un estudio de dichas variables.

 

ABSTRACT

From uvbyβ photometry of the open clusters NGC 6811 (75 stars), and NGC 6830 (19 stars) we were able to determine membership of the stars to each cluster, and fix the age and reddening for each. Since several short period stars have recently been found, we have carried out a study of these variables.

Key Words: open clusters and associations: individual (NGC 6811, NGC 6830) — techniques: photometric.
