We present the Late-Type Extension to the Motion Verified Red Stars (LaTE-MoVeRS) catalog, containing 46,463 photometric late-type ($>$ M5) dwarfs within the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) footprint. Proper motions were computed for objects combining astrometry from the SDSS Data Release 12 (DR12), the Two-Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) Point Source Catalog (PSC), and the \emph{Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer} (\emph{WISE}) AllWISE datasets. LaTE-MoVeRS objects were required to have…

We present 2MASS J11151597+1937266, a recently identified low-surface gravity L dwarf, classified as an L2$\gamma$ based on Sloan Digital Sky Survey optical spectroscopy. We confirm this spectral
Masses and Radii of Four Very Low-mass Stars in F+M Eclipsing Binary Systems
Eclipsing Binaries (EBs) with one of the companions as very low mass stars (VLMS or M dwarfs) are testbeds to substantiate stellar models and evolutionary theories. Here, we present four EB
New ultra-cool and brown dwarf candidates in Gaia DR2
Context. The second Gaia data release (Gaia DR2) contains high-precision positions, parallaxes, and proper motions for 1.3 billion sources. The resulting Hertzsprung–Russel diagram reveals fine
A 3 Gyr White Dwarf with Warm Dust Discovered via the Backyard Worlds: Planet 9 Citizen Science Project
Infrared excesses due to dusty disks have been observed orbiting white dwarfs with effective temperatures between 7200 K and 25000 K, suggesting that the rate of tidal disruption of minor bodies
