To test our new, improved Reimers-type mass-loss relation, given by Schroder & Cuntz in 2005 (ApJ, 630, L73), we take a look at the best studied galactic giants and supergiants – particularly those with spatially resolved circumstellar shells and winds, obtained directly or by means of a companion acting as a probing light source. Together with well-known physical parameters, the selected stars provide the most powerful and critical observational venues for assessing the validity of… Expand
