Model star clusters in Andromeda galaxy


t = 20 Myr, M = 3000 Msun


t = 100 Myr, M = 3000 Msun


t = 500 Myr, M = 3000 Msun


t = 2.5 Gyr, M = 104 Msun


t = 10.5 Gyr, M = 105 Msun

Animation sequences of 31 model star clusters of five indicated ages and "luminous" masses, located in Andromeda galaxy (D = 785 kpc). King model of core radius rc = 0.75 pc, tidal radius rt = 15 pc, i.e., half-light radius rh ~ 1.7 pc, were assumed. Left panel shows HST/ACS (FWHMPSF ~ 0.2 arcsec, image scale = 0.05 arcsec/pix), right panel shows SUBARU Suprime-Cam (FWHMPSF ~ 0.7 arcsec, image scale = 0.2 arcsec/pix) images. The blue, green, and red colors correspond to the U, V, I pass-bands of Johnson-Cousins photometric system, respectively.
