We present photometry and a preliminary interpretation of a UBVR survey of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, which covers 14.5 deg2 and 7.2 deg2, respectively. This study is aimed at obtaining well-calibrated data on the brighter, massive stars, complementing recent, deeper CCD surveys. Our catalog contains 179,655 LMC and 84,995 SMC stars brighter than V ~ 18.0, and is photometrically complete to U ~ B ~ V ~ 15.7 and R ~ 15.2, although stars in crowded regions are selectively missed. We… 
A BVR Photometric Survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud with a Mosaic CCD
We performed a BVR photometric survey for the entire Small Magellanic Cloud (~26 deg 2 ) with a mosaic system, Wide Field Imager (WFI), covering three seasons: September and October 2001 and November
A new survey of cool supergiants in the Magellanic Clouds
In this study, we conduct a pilot program aimed at the red supergiant population of the Magellanic Clouds. We intend to extend the current known sample to the unexplored low end of the brightness
Spitzer SAGE Infrared Photometry of Massive Stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present a catalog of 1750 massive stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), with accurate spectral types compiled from the literature, and a photometric catalog for a subset of 1268 of these
A 2dF survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud
We present a catalogue of new spectral types for hot, luminous stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). The catalogue contains 4161 objects, giving an order-of-magnitude increase in the number of

We present our catalog of U, B, V, and I stellar photometry of the central 64 deg2 area of the Large Magellanic Cloud. Internal and external astrometric and photometric tests using existing optical
VARIABILITY OF LUMINOUS STARS IN THE LARGE MAGELLANIC CLOUD USING 10 YEARS OF ASAS DATA
Motivated by the detection of a recent outburst of the massive luminous blue variable LMC-R71, which reached an absolute magnitude MV = ?9.3 mag, we undertook a systematic study of the optical
A Survey of Local Group Galaxies Currently Forming Stars. I. UBVRI Photometry of Stars in M31 and M33
We present UBVRI photometry obtained from Mosaic images of M31 and M33 using the Kitt Peak National Observatory 4 m telescope. We describe our data reduction and automated photometry techniques in
Massive Star Astrophysics with the new Magellanic Cloud photometric survey MCSF
Abstract Surveys of the resolved stellar content of entire galaxies are the natural tool to study fast evolutionary phases of massive stars. Therefore we launched the Magellanic Clouds Massive Stars
Spitzer SAGE-SMC Infrared Photometry of Massive Stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud
