Hubble Space Telescope Fine Guidance Sensor Parallaxes of Galactic Cepheid Variable Stars: Period-Luminosity Relations
We present new absolute trigonometric parallaxes and relative proper motions for nine Galactic Cepheid variable stars: l Car, ζ Gem, β Dor, W Sgr, X Sgr, Y Sgr, FF Aql, T Vul, and RT Aur. We obtain
A New Calibration Of Galactic Cepheid Period-Luminosity Relations From B To K Bands, And A Comparison To LMC Relations
Context. The universality of the Cepheid Period-Luminosity relations has been under discussion since metallicity effects have been assumed to play a role in the value of the intercept and, more
Astrometry with the Hubble Space Telescope: A Parallax of the Fundamental Distance Calibrator RR Lyrae
We present an absolute parallax and relative proper motion for the fundamental distance scale calibrator � Cep. We obtain these with astrometric data from FGS 3, a white-light interferometer on the
Detection of a NEPTUNE-mass planet in the $ρ^{1}$ Cancri system using the Hobby-Eberly Telescope
We report the detection of the lowest mass extrasolar planet yet found around a Sun-like star—a planet with an M sin i of only 14.21 ± 2.91 M⊕ in an extremely short period orbit (P = 2.808 days)
CONFIRMATION OF ERRORS IN HIPPARCOS PARALLAXES FROM HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE FINE GUIDANCE SENSOR ASTROMETRY OF THE PLEIADES
We present absolute trigonometric parallaxes and relative proper motions for three members of the Pleiades, obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope's Fine Guidance Sensor 1r, a white-light
Distance Scale Zero Points From Galactic RR Lyrae Star Parallaxes
We present new absolute trigonometric parallaxes and proper motions for seven Population II variable stars—five RR Lyr variables: RZ Cep, XZ Cyg, SU Dra, RR Lyr, and UV Oct; and two type 2 Cepheids:
The Extrasolar Planet ∊ Eridani b: Orbit and Mass
Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of the nearby (3.22 pc) K2 V star Eridani have been combined with ground-based astrometric and radial velocity data to determine the mass of its known
The Solar Neighborhood XXXVII: The Mass-Luminosity Relation for Main Sequence M Dwarfs
We present a Mass-Luminosity Relation (MLR) for red dwarfs spanning a range of masses from 0.62 Msun to the end of the stellar main sequence at 0.08 Msun. The relation is based on 47 stars for which
Astrometry with Hubble Space Telescope: A Parallax of the Fundamental Distance Calibrator delta Cephei
We present an absolute parallax and relative proper motion for the fundamental distance scale calibrator, delta Cep. We obtain these with astrometric data from FGS 3, a white-light interferometer on
The optical mass-luminosity relation at the end of the main sequence (0.08-0.20 M⊙)
The empirical mass-luminosity relation at M is presented for stars with masses 0.08-0.20 M☉ based upon new observations made with Fine Guidance Sensor 3 on the Hubble Space Telescope. The targets are
