Description of Terzan 10

Very few information is available for this cluster. By means of the bright giants method Webbink (1985) estimated an horizontal branch level of which, combined to a reddening of E(B-V) = 1.71 from the modified cosecant law, led to a distance from the Sun of . The cluster is not concentrated, with c = 1.12, as estimated from the core and limiting radii presented by Webbink. Liu et al. (1994) presented infrared photometry deriving a reddening of E(B-V) = 2.6, a metallicity close to that of 47 Tuc, and a true distance modulus of (m-M)0 = 14.5.
