Abstract

CCD B, V observations of the NGC 7142 field reveal the presence of a single short-period variable star. The color-magnitude diagram of the field shows evidence for small-scale variable absorption across the face of the cluster. The age of NGC 7142 appears to be confirmed as intermediate between that of M 67 and NGC 188, and a new distance modulus is found to be (m-M)o = 11.4 ± 0.9.
