Mean proper motions and parallaxes of 205 open clusters were determined from their member stars found in
the Hipparcos Catalogue. 360 clusters were searched for possible members,
excluding nearby clusters with distances D
< 200 pc. Members were selected using
ground based information (photometry, radial velocity, proper motion, distance from
the cluster centre) and information provided by Hipparcos (proper motion, parallax).
Altogether 630 certain and 100 possible members were found.
A comparison of the Hipparcos parallaxes with photometric distances
of open clusters shows good agreement. The Hipparcos data
confirm or reject the membership of several Cepheids in the studied clusters.

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.
An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the
OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access
to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific
search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be
generated by different means.
If your librarian has set up your subscription with an
OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your
In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see
You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
