AbstractA complete census of the blue horizontal branch (BHB) and blue straggler star (BSS) population within a 10' radius from the centre of the globular cluster NGC 288 is presented, based on images from the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UVIT). The UV and UV-optical colour-magnitude diagrams (CMDs) are constructed by combining the UVIT, HST-ACS and ground data and are compared with the Bag of Stellar Tracks and Isochrones (BaSTI) isochrones generated for UVIT filters. We used stellar proper motion data from GAIA DR2 to select the cluster members (...) This study showcases the importance of combining UVIT with HST, ground and GAIA data in deriving HB and BSS properties.
