Abstract:

We present for the globular cluster NGC 5927 the first multicolor CCD photometry that reaches below the cluster's main sequence turnoff. The turnoff is located approximately at , , . There is a hint of horizontal branch morphology variations with distance from the cluster center. Using the isochrones of VandenBerg & Bell (1985), we derive the cluster age to be about 15 Gyr.

Key words: globular clusters: individual: NGC 5927 --- HR diagram
