Abstract

A CCD V,V-I colour-magnitude diagram (CMD) of the Galactic globular cluster NGC 2808 has been obtained with the ESO-NTT, reaching down to V ~ 24. The highly populated Main Sequence (MS) presents a significant broadening redward to the MS ridge line, larger than expected from photometric errors alone, which could be interpreted as due to binary candidates.
