Theoretical isochrones for 2MASS filters, VEGAmag system

The present directory (isoc_2mass) contains the data files for the 2MASS JHKs VEGAmag system. Before downloading, please give a look at:

  • The Electronic Paper: Theoretical isochrones compared to 2MASS observations: Open clusters at nearly solar metallicity , by Ch. Bonatto, E. Bica, L. Girardi, 2004, Astronomy & Astrophysics, 415, 571.
  • The Reference table with a summary description of the stellar evolutionary models in use, and their basic references. This allows you to know the differences between the several isochrone files (and better than the minimal table you see below).
  • The readme.txt file (ascii file, 13 Kby), with a field-by-field description of all files in the database.
  • Here you can download the (gzipped) data files:
