  • The very young brown dwarf candidate Cha Hα 8 was recently discovered to have a close (∼1 AU) companion by means of radial velocity monitoring. We present additional radial velocity data obtained with UVES/VLT between 2007 and 2010, which significantly improve the orbit determination of the system. The combined data set spans ten years of radial velocity monitoring for Cha Hα 8. A Kepler fit to the data yields an orbital period of 5.2 years, an eccentricity of e = 0.59, and a radial velocity… CONTINUE READING
