Multiple images of the R136 cluster in the Large Magellanic Cloud taken with the HST/WFPC2 and the F555W and F814W filters were combined to obtain very deep images of the cluster, with total exposure times of 1240 and 760 sec respectively. The objective of the study was to extend the luminosity function below the limit of 2.8 M published by Hunter et al. (1995, 1996).
