We present deep and accurate Near-Infrared (NIR) photometry of the Galactic Globular Cluster (GC) ω Cen. Data were collected using the Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics Demonstrator (MAD) on VLT (ESO). The unprecedented quality of the images provided the opportunity to perform accurate photometry in the central crowded regions. Preliminary results indicate that the spread in age among the different stellar populations in ω Cen is limited.

Abstract

We present deep and accurate Near-Infrared (NIR) photometry of the Galactic Globular Cluster (GC) ω Cen. Data were collected using the Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics Demonstrator (MAD) on VLT (ESO). The unprecedented quality of the images provided the opportunity to perform accurate photometry in the central crowded regions. Preliminary results indicate that the spread in age among the different stellar populations in ω Cen is limited.
