Updating the census of star clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud

By Eduardo Luiz Damiani Bica and Carlos Maximiliano Dutra


Surveys using CCD detectors are retrieving bright and faint cataloged clusters and revealing new ones in the Magellanic Clouds. This paper discusses the contribution of the OGLE Survey to the overall census of star clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). A detailed cross-identiÐcation indicates that the new objects in the SMC OGLE catalog are 46. The increase in the number of cataloged clusters is ≈7%, the total sample being ≈700. This updated census includes embedded clusters in H II regions and a density range attaining loose systems
