The L1641 North Aggregate: The Near Infrared Image

L1641 N infrared image

This is the near infrared image

You may also see images at other wavelengths by clicking on the colorbar at a point above any of the dashed arrows (which point to other regions of the spectrum at which images are available). The solid arrow shows the spectral region you are seeing now. This is not intended to be a linear scale in wavelength, but only a rough guide to the wavelength of the observation.

The L1641 North Region

This heavily embedded cluster in the L1641 North region is the location of a powerful molecular outflow (Fukui et al. 1986). The existence of the group was discovered by Strom, Margulis and Strom (1989). It was further studied photometrically by Chen et al. (1993). An infrared spectroscopic study was done by Hodapp & Deane (1993). This group is extremely young as shown by the luminosity function (Strom, Strom & Merrill (1993) and the HR diagram (Allen, Strom & Strom (in preparation). Many of the stars in this cluster suffer enormous extinctions (>30 magnitudes in the visible). Few are seen at visible wavelengths.
