Star clusters are ideal platforms for categorising X-ray emitting stars and to study X-ray emission as a function of stellar age and activity. We present a comprehensive study of an open star cluster, NGC2527, by combining data from XMM-UVOT-Gaia. Cluster membership of stars and their photometry are taken from Gaia and cross-matched with XMM and UVOT detections. We estimate the age of NGC2527 as ~630 Myr, reddening as E(B-V)=0.13 mag, and a distance of 642+/-30 pc using PARSEC isochrones. We…

X-ray observations of the old open stellar cluster NGC 188

I present the analysis results from XMM-Newton observations of the old open stellar cluster NGC 188, which has an age of about 7 Gyr and a near solar metallicity. 58 X-ray sources were detected in

X-ray Source Populations in the Region of the Open Clusters NGC 6633 and IC 4756

Using deep exposures (∼105 s) with the ROSAT High Resolution Imager, we have performed flux-limited surveys for X-ray sources in the vicinity of the Hyades-age open stellar clusters NGC 6633 and IC

Ultraviolet stellar population of the old open cluster M67 (NGC 2682)

We present the results of ultraviolet (UV) photometry of the old open cluster M67 obtained using Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) in far-ultraviolet (FUV) and near-ultraviolet (NUV) bands. UV

THE SWIFT UVOT STARS SURVEY. I. METHODS AND TEST CLUSTERS

We describe the motivations and background of a large survey of nearby stellar populations using the Ultraviolet Optical Telescope (UVOT) on board the Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission. UVOT, with its

The Swift UVOT Stars Survey. III. Photometry and Color–Magnitude Diagrams of 103 Galactic Open Clusters

As part of the Swift/Ultraviolet-Optical Telescope Stars Survey, we present near-ultraviolet (NUV; 3000–1700 Å) point-source photometry for 103 Galactic open clusters. These data, taken over the span

A CHANDRA X-RAY STUDY OF THE INTERACTING BINARIES IN THE OLD OPEN CLUSTER NGC 6791

We present the first X-ray study of NGC 6791, one of the oldest open clusters known (8 Gyr). Our Chandra observation is aimed at uncovering the population of close interacting binaries down to LX ≈ 1

SWIFT/UVOT PHOTOMETRY OF THE PLANETARY NEBULA WeBo 1: UNMASKING A FAINT HOT COMPANION STAR

We present an analysis of over 150 ks of data on the planetary nebula WeBo 1 (PN G135.6+01.0) obtained with the Swift Ultraviolet Optical Telescope (UVOT). The central object of this nebula has

UVIT Open Cluster Study. I. Detection of a White Dwarf Companion to a Blue Straggler in M67: Evidence of Formation through Mass Transfer

The old open cluster M67, populated with blue straggler stars (BSSs), is a well-known test bed to study the BSS formation pathways. Here, we report the first direct detection of a white dwarf (WD)

THE ORIGIN OF ENHANCED ACTIVITY IN THE SUNS OF M67

We report the results of the analysis of high-resolution photospheric line spectra obtained with the UVES instrument on the VLT for a sample of 15 solar-type stars selected from a recent survey of

Blue Lurkers: Hidden Blue Stragglers on the M67 Main Sequence Identified from Their Kepler/K2 Rotation Periods

At an age of 4 Gyr, typical solar-type stars in M67 have rotation rates of 20–30 days. Using K2 Campaign 5 and 16 light curves and the spectral archive of the WIYN Open Cluster Study, we identify 11
