Star Forming Regions in Cepheus

  title={Star Forming Regions in Cepheus},
  author={M{\'a}ria Kun and Zolt{\'a}n Tam{\'a}s Kiss and Zolt{\'a}n Balog},
The northern Milky Way in the constellation of Cepheus (100 deg 10 deg, are sites of low and intermediate mass star formation located between 200 and 450 pc from the Sun. Three nearby OB associations, Cep OB2, Cep OB3, Cep OB4, located at 600-800 pc, are each involved in forming stars, like the well known high mass star forming region S140 at 900 pc. The reflection nebula NGC 7129 around 1 kpc harbors young, compact clusters of low and intermediate mass stars. The giant star forming complex NGC… 

A census of young stellar population associated with the Herbig Be star HD 200775

The region surrounding the well-known reflection nebula, NGC 7023, illuminated by a Herbig Be star, HD 200775, located in the dark cloud L1174 is studied in this work. Based on the distances and

KFPA Examinations of Young STellar Object Natal Environments (KEYSTONE): Hierarchical Ammonia Structures in Galactic Giant Molecular Clouds

We present initial results from the K-band Focal Plane Array Examinations of Young STellar Object Natal Environments survey, a large project on the 100 m Green Bank Telescope mapping ammonia emission

Star formation in the Gould Belt : a submillimetre perspective

1st Supervisor: Dr. Jennifer Hatchell 2nd Supervisor: Prof. Matthew R. Bate This thesis presents my work characterising star formation in Gould Belt molecular clouds using submillimetre observations

The Cepheus Flare

This chapter discusses the Cepheus Flare molecular clouds. Sources are extracted from the SCUBA-2 850-\(\upmu \)m data and characterised using flux densities measured from the 850-\(\upmu \)m data

Long-term photometric behavior of the PMS stars V977 Cep and V982 Cep in the vicinity of NGC 7129

Long-term BV RI photometric light curves of the pre-main sequence stars V977 Cep and V982 Cep during the period from 2000 October to 2016 August are presented. The stars are located in the vicinity

The low mass star and sub-stellar populations of the 25 Orionis group

We present the results of a survey of the low mass star and brown dwarf population of the 25 Orionis group. Using optical photometry from the CIDA Deep Survey of Orion, near IR photometry from the

Investigation of a transiting planet candidate in Trumpler 37: An astro-physical false positive eclipsing spectroscopic binary star

We report our investigation of the first transiting planet candidate from the YETI project in the young (∼4 Myr old) open cluster Trumpler 37. The transit-like signal detected in the lightcurve of


Distance measurements to molecular clouds are important but are often made separately for each cloud of interest, employing very different data and techniques. We present a large, homogeneous catalog

The stellar content of the young open cluster Trumpler 37

With an apparent cluster diameter of 1.5° and an age of 4 Myr, Trumpler 37 is an ideal target for photometric monitoring of young stars as well as for the search of planetary transits, eclipsing


Wide-field optical imaging was obtained of the cluster and reflection nebula NGC 7023 and the Bok globule B175. We report the discovery of four new Herbig–Haro (HH) objects in NGC 7023, the first HH

Abstract While the overall star formation rate in a galaxy appears to depend primarily on the gas mass and density, with the timescale for conversion of gas into stars given by the dynamical time,
