Four-color and Hβ photometry has been obtained for 16 stars in the open cluster NGC 6087. Based on this photometry the membership of these stars in the cluster is discussed. Using stars which appear to be members a color excess of E(b – y) = 0m.23 and a distance modulus of (V0 – Mv) = 9m.60 are derived. This distance modulus is about 0m.4 less than previous values and indicates a lower luminosity for the Cepheid member, S Nor, than is currently accepted.
