  • We used high-resolution Hubble Space Telescope (HST)-WFPC2 and wide-field ground-based observations to construct a catalog of blue straggler stars (BSSs) that spans the entire radial extent of the globular cluster NGC 6752. The BSS sample is the most extensive ever obtained for this cluster. Although NGC 6752 is a high-density cluster with a large binary population, we found that its BSS content is surprisingly low: the specific number of BSSs is among the lowest ever measured in a cluster.
