CHARACTERIZATION OF SEVEN ULTRA-WIDE TRANS-NEPTUNIAN BINARIES

The low-inclination component of the Classical Kuiper Belt is host to a population of extremely widely separated binaries. These systems are similar to other trans-Neptunian binaries (TNBs) in that

A New NOAO Survey Program : Mutual Orbits and Masses of Kuiper Belt Binaries

We will report progress from our multi-year campaign to determine the orbits and masses of transneptunian binaries (TNBs). Binary systems are abundant in the Kuiper belt, and especially among the

Rotational properties of the binary and non-binary populations in the Trans-Neptunian belt

We present results for the short-term variability of Binary Trans-Neptunian Objects (BTNOs). We performed CCD photometric observations using the 3.58 m Telescopio Nazionale Galileo, the 1.5 m Sierra

TNOs are Cool: A Survey of the Transneptunian Region

Over one thousand objects have so far been discovered orbiting beyond Neptune. These trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) represent the primitive remnants of the planetesimal disk from which the planets

We have measured the separations and position angles of the two components of the binary trans-Neptunian object (58534) 1997 CQ29 at eight epochs. From these data we are able to constrain the orbit

We present the results of a three year monitoring program of a sample of very low mass (VLM) field binaries using both astrometric and spectroscopic data obtained in conjunction with the laser guide
