  • We present here the results of astrometric, photometric and spectroscopic observations leading to the determination of the orbit and dynamical masses of the binary L dwarf 2MASSW J0746425+2000321. High angular resolution observations spread over almost 4 years and obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT), and at heW. M. Keck Observatory (Keck) allow us to cover ∼36% of the period, corresponding to 60% of the orbit, and, for the first time, to derive a… CONTINUE READING
