Extended Data Fig. 3: CMD Ks versus H-Ks (Vega magnitude system) showing original data (red dots) and the result after applying the extinction correction (in black).

From: Early formation and recent starburst activity in the nuclear disk of the Milky Way

Extended Data Fig. 3

The black dashed line shows the cut in H-Ks to exclude the foreground population. The red and cyan lines correspond to BaSTI isochrones of an old and a young population ~10 Gyr and ~1 Gyr, respectively according to our results. The zoom shows the RC region. Only a random fraction of the total amount of stars is shown for clarity.
