MWSC Member Search

MWSC presents a list of 3006 Milky Way Stellar Clusters (MWSC), found in the 2MAst (2MASS with Astrometry) catalogue. The target list was compiled on the basis of present-day lists of open, globular and candidate clusters. For confirmed clusters we determined a homogeneous set of astrophysical parameters such as membership, angular radii of the main morphological parts, mean cluster proper motions, distances, reddenings, ages, tidal parameters, and sometimes radial velocities.

The Data Center is currently running in emergency mode after our database server failed catastrophically (see our blog for infos and updates).

This means, in particular, that services built on top of large tables may currently be broken. Since our replacement server is much slower than our usual machine, restoring them will take quite some time.
