A deep [S II] λλ6717/6731 wide-field survey of Herbig-Haro (HH) objects has been carried out in two fields toward the R CrA molecular cloud using the ESO/MPG 2.2 m Wide Field Imager. Twelve new HH objects, many of which consist of several condensations or knots, have been discovered, and new details of the known HH objects have been revealed. Combining the results of previous optical, infrared, and millimeter-wavelength observations, the possible exciting sources of HH objects in the region are…

We have performed a deep [S ii] λλ6717/6731 wide field Herbig–Haro (HH) object survey toward the Vela C molecular cloud with a sky coverage of about 2 deg2. In total, 18 new HH objects, HH 1090-1107,

A Search for Optical Outflows from Brown Dwarfs in the Chamaeleon I Molecular Cloud

A deep and wide-field HH object survey has been carried out toward the Chamaeleon I (Cha I) molecular cloud with a sky coverage of 1° × 2°, which embraces the entire Cha I molecular cloud. In total,

A DEEP NEAR-INFRARED SURVEY TOWARD THE AQUILA MOLECULAR CLOUD. I. MOLECULAR HYDROGEN OUTFLOWS

We have performed an unbiased, deep near-infrared survey toward the Aquila molecular cloud with a sky coverage of ∼1 deg2. We identified 45 molecular hydrogen emission-line objects (MHOs), of which

HERBIG-HARO OBJECTS IN THE LUPUS I AND III MOLECULAR CLOUDS

We performed a deep search for Herbig–Haro (HH) objects toward the Lupus I and III clouds, covering a sky area of ∼ 1 and ∼ 0.5 deg2, respectively. In total, 11 new HH objects, HH 981--991, are

Radio continuum imaging of the R Coronae Austrinae star-forming region with the ATCA

Aims. The aim of this study is to investigate the nature of radio sources associated with young stellar objects (YSOs) belonging to the R CrA cluster. By combining the centimetre radio data with the

A near-infrared survey of the entire R Coronae Australis cloud

Aims. To understand low- to intermediate-mass star-formation in the nearby R Cr A molecular cloud, we try to identify the stellar content that is accessible with near-infrared observations. Methods.

H2 flows in the Corona Australis cloud and their driving sources

Aims. We uncover the H2 flows in the Corona Australis molecular cloud and in particul ar identify the flows from the Coronet cluster. Methods. A deep, near-infrared H2 v=1‐0 S(1), 2.122µm -line,

Strong irradiation of protostellar cores in Corona Australis

Context. The importance of the physical environment in the evolution of newly formed low-mass stars remains an open question. In particular, radiation from nearby more massive stars may affect both
