  • Abstract : The Mark III interferometer is an operational long baseline stellar interferometer on Mt. Wilson with four-possible baseline configurations from 9m NE-SW to 20m N-S. The interferometer was designed to be a highly automated astronomical instrument to measure stellar positions and diameters to a magnitude limit of seven. Initial fringe observations were made in September 1986 with a 12-m N-S baseline. In the following months, semi-automated astrometric and stellar diameter measurements… CONTINUE READING
