We present first results from the Palomar Adaptive Optics Survey of Young Stars conducted at the Hale 5 m telescope. Through direct imaging we have discovered a brown dwarf and two low-mass stellar companions to the young solar-type stars HD 49197, HD 129333 (EK Dra), and V522 Per, and confirmed a previously suspected companion to RX J0329.1+0118 (Sterzik et al. 1997), at respective separations of 0.95 (43 AU), 0.74 (25 AU), 2.09 (400 AU), and 3.78 (380 AU). Physical association of each binary… CONTINUE READING
