J/AJ/136/312  2001-2006 WIYN binary stars speckle observations (Horch+, 2008)

Charge-coupled device speckle observations of binary stars with the WIYN telescope. V. Measures during 2001-2006. Horch E.P., Van Altena W.F., Cyr W.M., Kinsman-Smith L., Srivastava A., Zhou J. <Astron. J., 136, 312-322 (2008)> =2008AJ....136..312H
ADC_Keywords: Stars, double and multiple ; Photometry Keywords: astrometry - binaries: visual - techniques: interferometric - techniques: photometric Abstract: A total of 1067 speckle observations of 345 binary stars are presented. Of these, 161 are double stars first resolved by Hipparcos, 17 are resolved for the first time in the observations presented here, and 21 are stars previously discovered by our program and reported in earlier papers in the series. In 947 cases, a magnitude difference is reported along with the relative astrometry. Description: For all observations discussed in this paper, the RYTSI optics package and the imaging CCD were mounted at the Nasmyth port (the so-called "WIYN port") of the WIYN Telescope, between 2001 Jun and 2006 Jul.

Note (1): Where the RA and Dec (J2000.0) are given in the number with the format HHMM.m±DDMM. See Cat. B/wds Note (2): Observation flags as follows: a = Quadrant ambiguous, but consistent with previous measures in the Fourth Interferometric Catalog a? = Quadrant ambiguous, but possibly consistent with previous measures in the Fourth Interferometric Catalog b = Quadrant ambiguous, but inconsistent with previous measures in the Fourth Interferometric Catalog b? = Quadrant ambiguous, but possibly inconsistent with previous measures in the Fourth Interferometric Catalog c = Quadrant is inconsistent with previous measures in the Fourth Interferometric Catalog c? = Quadrant is possibly inconsistent with previous measures in the Fourth Interferometric Catalog
