Cluster’s Advanced Age in Razor-sharp Focus

The color-magnitude diagrams of NGC6624 obtained from the Gemini observations. All the main evolutionary sequences of the cluster are easily visible. These NIR diagrams turn out to be comparable to the HST optical ones, both in depth and in photometric accuracy. The photometric errors for each bin of Ks and J magnitudes are shown on the right side of the panels.
