(IAAC) M56: new distance



Hi all:
Only few words about M56.
In the paper ‘Catalog of parameters for Milky Way globular clusters’
(Harris, W.E., AJ, 112, 1487, 1999) the NEW tabuled distance for M56 is
10.1 kpc from the Sun (32 926 l.y.), with a integrated spectral type F5
(like Procyon, Alpha Per or Beta Cas).
Clear skies.
