Abstract : Proper motion study in star clusters probably has a more immediate impact than any other area of astronomy. Star clusters provide us with laboratories to study the formation and evolution of stars. Proper motion, cluster membership, internal dynamics as well as absolute proper motion leading to space velocities makes a very significant contribution to the broader subject of star clusters. So, for this purpose, I am using two epoch images with a time baseline of about 10-15 years taken from ESO 2.2m telescope and applying high-precision astrometry technique to derive membership information and produce color-magnitude diagrams with reduced field star contamination.
