Context. Although they are the main constituents of the Galactic disk population, for half of the open clusters in the Milky Way reported in the literature nothing is known except the raw position and an approximate size. Aims. The main goal of this study is to determine a full set of uniform spatial, structural, kinematic, and astrophysical param eters for as many known open clusters as possible. Methods. On the basis of stellar data from PPMXL and 2MASS, we used a dedicated data-processing…

A Gaia DR2 view of the open cluster population in the Milky Way
Context. Open clusters are convenient probes of the structure and history of the Galactic disk. They are also fundamental to stellar evolution studies. The second Gaia data release contains precise
Global survey of star clusters in the Milky Way - III. 139 new open clusters at high Galactic latitudes
Context. An earlier analysis of the Milky Way Star Cluster (MWSC) catalogue revealed an apparent lack of old (t & 1 Gyr) open clusters in the solar neighbourhood (d. 1 kpc). Aims. To fill this gap we
Global survey of star clusters in the Milky Way
Context. The all-sky Milky Way Star Clusters (MWSC) survey provides uniform and precise ages, along with other relevant parameters, for a wide variety of clusters in the extended solar neighbourhood.
Global survey of star clusters in the Milky Way - V. Integrated JHKS magnitudes and luminosity functions
Aims. In this study we determine absolute integrated magnitudes in the J,H,KS passbands for Galactic star clusters from the Milky Way Star Clusters survey. In the wide solar neighbourhood, we derive
Clusters and mirages: cataloguing stellar aggregates in the Milky Way
Context. Many of the open clusters listed in modern catalogues were initially reported by visual astronomers as apparent overdensities of bright stars. As observational techniques and analysis
New compact star cluster candidates in the Galactic plane
The sample of known star clusters, the fundamental building blocks of galaxies, in the Milky Way is still extremely incomplete for objects beyond a distance of 1-2kpc. Many of the more distant and
Investigation of the open star cluster NGC 6800
The results of a comprehensive study of the Galactic open cluster NGC 6800 are presented. The positions of stars to a limiting magnitude B ≃ 16.m5 in an 80’ × 80’ field centered at the cluster were
A Multi-band Catalog of 10978 Star Clusters, Associations, and Candidates in the Milky Way
We present a catalog of Galactic star clusters, associations and candidates with 10978 entries. This multi-band catalog was constructed over 20 years, starting with visual inspections on the Digital
Nine new open clusters within 500 pc from the Sun
One of the results of the Milky Way Star Clusters (MWSC) survey by Kharchenko et al. (2013) was the detection of a slight under-density of old (ca. 1 Gyr) clusters within the nearest kilo-parsec from
New star clusters discovered towards the Galactic bulge direction using Gaia DR2
We report the discovery of 34 new open clusters and candidates as a result of a systematic search carried out in 200 adjacent fields of 1× 1 deg area projected towards the Galactic bulge, using Gaia

Aims. On the basis of the PPMXL star catalogue we performed a survey of star clusters in the second quadrant of the Milky Way. Methods. From the PPMXL catalogue of positions and proper motions we
Old star clusters in the FSR catalogue
We investigate the old star clusters in the sample of cluster candidates from the Froebrich, Scholz & Raftery (FSR) list. Based on photometry from the Two-Micron All-Sky Survey, we generated

Context. Galactic open clusters (OCs) mainly belong to the young stellar population in the Milky Way disk, but are there groups and complexes of OCs that possibly define an additional level in
Astrophysical parameters of Galactic open clusters
We present a catalogue of astrophysical data for 520 Galactic open clusters. These are the clusters for which at least three most probable members (18 on average) could be identified in the ASCC-2.5,
109 new Galactic open clusters
We present a list of 130 Galactic Open Clusters, found in the All-Sky Compiled Catalogue of 2.5 Million Stars (ASCC-2.5). For these clusters we determined a homogeneous set of astrophysical
New infrared star clusters in the southern Milky Way with 2MASS
We carried out a 2MASS J, H and Ks survey of infrared star clusters in the Milky Way sector 230 <'< 350. This zone was the least studied in the literature, previously including only 12 infrared
A systematic survey for infrared star clusters with |b| < 20° using 2MASS
We used star density maps obtained from the Two-Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) to obtain a sample of star clusters in the entire Galactic Plane with |b| < 20°. A total of 1788 star cluster candidates
New catalogue of optically visible open clusters and candidates
We have compiled a new catalogue of open clusters in the Galaxy which updates the previous cat- alogues of Lyng a (1987) and of Mermilliod (1995) (included in the WEBDA database). New objects and new
