Testing the White Dwarf Mass-Radius Relation with Hipparcos*
We present the Hipparcos parallaxes and resulting radii for 10 white dwarfs in visual binaries or common proper-motion systems and 11 field white dwarfs. For bright stars, Hipparcos parallaxes haveExpand

A Redetermination of the Mass of Procyon
The parallax and astrometric orbit of Procyon have been redetermined from PDS measurements of over 250 photographic plates spanning 83 years, with roughly 600 exposures used in the solution. TheseExpand

EXOSAT observations of V471 Tauri - a 9. 25 minute white dwarf pulsation and orbital phase dependent X-ray dips
New results obtained from a 28 hr continuous observation of V471 Tauri with the EXOSAT satellite are reported. The detection of soft X-ray fluxes from both the white dwarf and the K dwarf, theExpand

Carbon and Hydrogen in Hot DB White Dwarfs
The roles played by carbon and hydrogen in helium atmosphere (DB) white dwarf evolution is not well understood. We present GHRS observations (centered at 1215 and 1335 A) of the hot helium whiteExpand

Analysis of helium-rich subdwarf O stars. 1: NLTE models, methods, and fits for 21 Palomar Green survey sdOs
Atmospheric parameters for 21 helium-rich hot subdwarf O stars from the Palomar Green survey are found from fits of non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) models to optical spectra. About 250 newExpand

H 1504 + 65 - An extraordinarily hot compact star devoid of hydrogen and helium
The optical identification of the bright soft X-ray source H 1504 + 65, originally discovered by the HEAO I A-2 low energy detectors, is reported. The optical counterpart exhibits a steep, virtuallyExpand
