Table B.1: PANIC NGC 1999 near-IR colors of background stars.
Five faint stars are visible in the PANIC H and images. Their positions and photometry are listed in Table B.1. Photometric calibration was performed with 2MASS photometry of comparison fields containing 20 2MASS sources and verified with a 2MASS star in the science field. Photometry was conducted with the IRAF task apphot.
The measured color was used to estimate the extinction AV toward the stars. We assumed an intrinsic color of 0.17, derived as the median colors of stars in an unreddened control field near Orion (Megeath et al., in prep). We adopted the reddening law of Indebetouw et al. (2005) to convert excess into K-band extinction AK, from which we obtained the optical extinction as , corresponding to a total to selective extinction RV between the diffuse ISM value of 3.1 and the higher values (up to 5) found for dense clouds (e.g. Campeggio et al. 2007).
