  • We present the first set of definitive trigonometric parallaxes and proper motions from the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory Parallax Investigation. Full astrometric reductions for the program are discussed, including methods of reference star selection, differential color refraction corrections, and conversion of relative to absolute parallax. Using data acquired at the 0.9 m telescope at CTIO, full astrometric solutions and VRIJHKs photometry are presented for 36 red and white dwarf… CONTINUE READING
