However, such surveys only cover the cluster centre and are probably not representative of the cluster as a whole. Our data, by constrast, covers most of the effective area of the cluster. In addition, there is uncertainty in the distance and age of the cluster. 32 from Hipparcos data, while Basri et al. (1996) discuss the age problem. 1M© the IMF is critically dependent on the gradient of the ML function; hence any turn-over seen at these masses should be treated with caution. 26 N. C.

We did not observe Li I 6708A at sufficient resolution to detect its presence in these stars. In any event, lithium could not have been used to distinguish a star from a brown dwarf as has been done for Calar 1 (Basri 1997) and others because at the estimated cluster age of 2 Myr, all stellar objects have lithium.

All images were required to be present on at least six I plates; images not present in the R stack (which reaches R ~ 21) were included as possible members with assumed large (R-I).
