Abstract

Photographicuvby photometry of 15 stars in the open cluster M52 (NGC 7654) has been obtained. The distance modulusV oM v=11.3±0.1 and mean cluster reddeningE(B−V)=0.57 are determined. Some basic physical characteristics of 30 stars with observeduvby values are obtained as well as a numerical estimation of the open cluster age 9.6×107 yr is made.
