Discovery of a stellar system in the background of 47 Tucanae ⋆ A new cluster of the Small Magellanic Cloud ?

Abstract

We report on the discovery of a stellar system in the background of the Galactic globular cluster 47 Tucanae (NGC 104), located 14.8 ′ NorthWest of the cluster center. The object, whose apparent diameter is D ≃ 30 ′′ , is partially resolved into stars on the available CCD images, reaching a limiting magnitude of V ∼ 22.5, and is detected as a significant… (More)
