Astrometry of the OH masers of 4 Mira stars


The OH main line masers in circumstellar shells were observed with astrometric VLBI in order to accurately determine the position of the star, as well as its motion, including the parallax. Results are presented on 4 Mira stars monitored for 2-8 years with the VLBA. The data show that in some stars the VLBI detection is dominated by blue-shifted emission… (More)
