Resolving stellar populations outside the Local Group: MAD observations of UKS 2323-326
Astronomy and Astrophysics
We present a study aimed at deriving constraints on star formation at intermediate ages from the evolved stellar populations in the dwarf irregular galaxy UKS2323-326. These observations were also intended to demonstrate the scientific capabilities of the multi-conjugated adaptive optics demonstrator (MAD) implemented at the ESO Very Large Telescope as a test-bench of adaptive optics (AO) techniques. We perform accurate, deep photometry of the field using J and Ks band AO images of the centraldoi:10.1051/0004-6361:200809631 fatcat:pkbhu56uorexrkyomi4jxwhepa
