Applying this spread results in the luminosity class sequences changing from lines to bands in colour-colour and colour-magnitude space.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
For Munari et al. (2005) models altering metallicity has little effect on IPHAS colour-colour diagrams, a shown by Fig. 4.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
It is very important to note that, in the IPHAS colour-colour plane, the reddening vector is at a signi ficant angle with respect to the majority of the main sequence (see Fig. 6).
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
This property of the IPHAS colour-colour plane is a result of the strong intrinsic (r ′ − i′ ) colour sensitivity of the (r ′ − Ha) colour, whilst its response to reddening is weak compared to that of broad-band colours.
