Stellar populations

Prepared by S. Ortolani and G. Piotto


A wide field imager can be used in a number of studies of the stellar population in the Galaxy and in clusters. Here we present a few programs particularly suitable for a prime focus at LBT. Even if some of them would be feasible with a similar camera at a smaller telescope, the exceptional limiting magnitudes of an 8m class telescope prime focus imager will give unique opportunities for most of the proposed investigations.
