  • High-resolution Hubble Space Telescope (HST) imaging observations of star cluster systems provide a very interesting and useful alternative for stellar population analyses to spectroscopic studies with 8m-class telescopes. Here, we assess the systematic uncertainties in (young) cluster age, mass, and – to a lesser extent – extinction and metallicity determinations, based on broad-band imaging observations with the HST. Our aim here is to intercompare the results obtained using a variety of… CONTINUE READING
