I present simple analytical equations to transform proper motion vectors from equatorial to Galactic coordinates. 

The Kinematics of the Outer Galactic Disk from A and F Stars

The kinematics of stars in the outer Galactic disk is poorly known. In addition to constraining the Galactic potential, knowledge of the motions of stars throughout the disk facilitates studies of

The Araucaria project. Precise physical parameters of the eclipsing binary IO Aquarii

Aims. Our aim is to precisely measure the physical parameters of the eclipsing binary IO Aqr and derive a distance to this system by applying a surface brightness – colour relation. Our motivation is

The Araucaria Project: accurate stellar parameters and distance to evolved eclipsing binary ASAS J180057-2333.8 in Sagittarius Arm

We have analyzed the double-lined eclipsing binary system ASAS J180057-2333.8 from the All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) catalogue . We measure absolute physical and orbital parameters for this system

Mining for Candidates of Galactic Stellar-mass Black Hole Binaries with LAMOST

We study the prospects of searching for black hole (BH) binary systems with a stellar-mass BH and a non-compact visible companion, by utilizing the spectroscopic data of the Large Sky Area

Runaways and shells around the CMa OB1 association

Context. The origin of the arc-shaped Sh 2-296 nebula is still unclear. Mainly due to its morphology, the nebula has been suggested to be a 0.5 Myr old supernova remnant (SNR) that could be inducing
