I am doing research with my teacher on photometry of the open star cluster Cepheus OB3, and we are trying to find research papers so we can target stars in the photos we took.

Are there any existing resources available on this matter?

Google uncovered this website from a group at the University of Exeter that has photometry. The format for the files is found here.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Grant Thomas Mar 3 '12 at 21:55
I agree in general, but as the question was asked, the link is essentially the answer. – jdmcbr Mar 4 '12 at 1:10
I understand the case, I'm just trying to encourage more awesome answers. (: – Grant Thomas Mar 4 '12 at 2:01
I'd be happy to delete my answer if you want to provide an awesome answer to this question. I provided the answer that I thought this question was both looking for and deserved. I reserve my awesome answers for good questions. – jdmcbr Mar 4 '12 at 2:17
