Abstract

We present a near-IR and optical spectrophotometric characterization of the stellar population of Sh2-152, as part of our MASGOMAS project. Using new broad band photometry (J, H and KS) for the cluster and a control field, we have constructed CMD in order to select OB-candidates for H and K spectroscopy. Also, we have obtained the cluster mass function, with the disc population subtracted using the control field mass function. From the 13 spectroscopically observed stars, 6 were classified as B-dwarfs and with individual distance and extinction estimations. With these values we have obtained estimations for the distance (3.01 ± 0.11) kpc, mass (1.86 ± 0.83)·103 Mo and age < 8.1 Myr for Sh2-152. We also present a new optical spectrum for the central ionizing star of Sh2-152, showing some peculiarities associated to this central object and shed some light over the interesting star deeply embedded into the bright KS nebulosity close to the IRAS source IRAS 22566+5828.
