HD 202206: a circumbinary brown dwarf system. Benedict G.F., Harrison T.E. <Astron. J., 153, 258-258 (2017)> =2017AJ....153..258B (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

Our modeling results in a parallax, πabs=21.96±0.12 milliseconds of arc, a mass for HD202206B of MB=0.089-0.006^+0.007M, and a mass for HD202206c of Mc=17.9-1.8+2.9MJup. HD202206 is a nearly face-on G + M binary orbited by a brown dwarf. The system architecture that we determine supports past assertions that stability requires a 5:1 mean motion resonance (we find a period ratio, Pc/PB=4.92±0.04) and coplanarity (we find a mutual inclination, Φ=6°±2°). Description: For this study astrometric measurements came from Fine Guidance Sensor 1r (FGS 1r), an upgraded FGS installed in 1997 during the second Hubble Space Telescope (HST) servicing mission. It provided superior fringes from which to obtain target and reference star positions (McArthur et al. 2003hstc.conf..373M). We utilized only the fringe tracking mode (POS mode) in this investigation. POS mode observations of a star have a typical duration of 60s, during which over 2000 individual position measures are collected. The astrometric centroid is estimated by choosing the median measure, after filtering large outliers (caused by cosmic-ray hits and particles trapped by the Earth's magnetic field). The standard deviation of the measures provides a measurement error. We refer to the aggregate of astrometric centroids of each star secured during one visibility period as an "orbit". Because one of the pillars of the scientific method involves reproducibility, we present a complete ensemble of time-tagged HD202206 and reference star astrometric measurements, Optical Field Angle Distortion (OFAD; McArthur et al. 2006hstc.conf..396M) and intra-orbit-drift-corrected, in Table2, along with calculated parallax factors in R.A. and decl. These data, collected from 2007.5 to 2010.4, in addition to providing material for confirmation of our results, might ultimately be combined with Gaia measures, significantly extending the time baseline of astrometry, thereby improving proper motion and perturbation characterization. Our band passes for reference star photometry include: BVRI photometry of the reference stars from the NMSU 1m telescope located at Apache Point Observatory and JHK (from 2MASS; see Cutri et al. 2003, Cat. II/246). Table4 lists the visible and infrared photometry for the HD202206 reference stars. To establish spectral type and luminosity class, the reference frame stars were observed on 2009 December 9 using the RCSPEC on the Blanco 4m telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO). We used the KPGL1 grating to give a dispersion of 0.95Å/pix. Classifications used a combination of template matching and line ratios. We determine the spectral types for the higher S/N stars to within ±1 subclass. Classifications for the lower S/N stars have ±2 subclass uncertainty. Table5 lists the spectral types and luminosity classes for our reference stars.

Note (1): We refer to the aggregate of astrometric centroids of each star secured during one visibility period as an "orbit". Note (2): As defined in Chapter 2, Fine Guidance Sensor Instrument Handbook v.23.0, Nelan 2015, Note (3): The Optical Field Angle Distortion (OFAD) calibration (McArthur et al. 2006hstc.conf..396M) reduces Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and Fine Guidance Sensors (FGS) as-built optical distortions of the order of 2s of arc to less than one mas in the center of the FGS field of regard. This level of correction persists for average radial distances from the FGS Field Of View (FOV) center <r>≤100'', and is a reason the parallax error for K Pav (±0.28mas, <r> =117'') is over twice that of RR Lyr (±0.13mas, <r> =44'') (Benedict et al. 2011, Cat. J/AJ/142/187).
