Australia Telescope Compact Array imaging of circumstellar HCN line emission from R Scl

Abstract

We present radio-interferometric observations of HCN J = 1 → 0 line emission from the carbon star R Scl, obtained with the interim 3-mm receivers of the Australia Telescope Compact Array. The emission is resolved into a central source with a Gaussian FWHM of ∼1 ′′ , which we identify as the present mass loss envelope. Using a simple photodissociation model… (More)
