Abstract

Photoelectric magnitudes and colours on the (U,B,V)-system have been determined for primary sequence stars in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds with the aluminized 18-inch Cape reflector. The magnitude system was established through observations of twenty bright standars stars. Observations of these, and additional, primary sequence stars in both Clouds were then secured with the silvered Radcliffe 74-inch reflector, and the magnitude and colour system transferred to secondary sequences in two fields of the Large Magellanic Clouds.
