We are conducting a high angular resolution imaging survey of Galactic Wolf-Rayet stars using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 aboard the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). We have found a small stellar cluster associated with the faint, close pair WR 38 and WR 38a. We present astrometric measurements and photometry in the wide-band F336W (U), F439W (B), and F555W (V) filter system for the cluster and nearby stars. We combine our photometry with Johnson and IR magnitudes and compare the… Expand
WR 38/38a and the ratio of total-to-selective extinction in Carina
A reanalysis of the (seemingly very distant) open cluster Shorlin 1, the group of stars associated with WR 38 and WR 38a, is made on the basis of existing UBV and JHKs observations for clusterExpand
Searching for spiral features in the outer Galactic disk the field towards WR38 and WR38a
Context. The detailed spiral structure of the outer Galactic disk remains poorly constrained, and for several line of sights in the Galaxy we depend on model extrapolations. Aims. One of theseExpand
Unlocking Galactic Wolf–Rayet stars with Gaia DR2 – II. Cluster and association membership
Galactic Wolf-Rayet (WR) star membership of star forming regions can be used to constrain the formation environments of massive stars. Here, we utilise $\textit{Gaia}$ DR2 parallaxes and properExpand
THE MEMBERSHIP AND DISTANCE OF THE OPEN CLUSTER COLLINDER 419
The young open cluster Collinder 419 surrounds the massive O star, HD 193322, that is itself a remarkable multiple star system containing at least four components. Here we present a discussion of theExpand
The variability of the BRITE-est Wolf-Rayet binary, γ2 Velorum-I. Photometric and spectroscopic evidence for colliding winds
We report on the first multi-color precision light curve of the bright Wolf-Rayet binary $\gamma^2$ Velorum, obtained over six months with the nanosatellites in the BRITE- Constellation fleet. InExpand
The Galactic WC stars Stellar parameters from spectral analyses indicate a new evolutionary sequence
[Abridged] [...] AIMS: We aim to establish the stellar parameters and mass-loss rates of the Galactic WC stars. These data provide the empirical basis of studies of (i) the role of WC stars in theExpand
