  • The nearest known binary brown dwarf WISE J104915.57-531906.1AB (LUH 16) is a well-studied benchmark for our understanding of substellar objects. Previously published astrometry of LUH 16 obtained with FORS2 on the Very Large Telescope was affected by errors that limited its use in combination with other datasets, thereby hampering the determination of its accurate orbital parameters and masses. We improve upon the calibration and analysis of the FORS2 astrometry with the help of Gaia DR2 to… CONTINUE READING
