AbstractWe present preliminary results from a new wide-field photometric investigation of the globular cluster system of NGC 5128. NGC 5128 is the nearest giant elliptical and thus its globular cluster system serves as prototype for those of this important galaxy type. We have obtained images from IMACS at the Magellan telescope in excellent seeing that allow us to not only resolve globular clusters but derive their structural parameters. This extensive database provides a wealth of data to study the globular clusters in unprecedented detail. We discuss here the resolution of the clusters and their preliminary structural parameters.
