J/MNRAS/393/538     Stellar association around gamma Vel     (Jeffries+, 2009)

The stellar association around gamma Velorum and its relationship with Vela OB2. Jeffries R.D., Naylor T., Walter F.M., Pozzo M.P., Devey C.R. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 393, 538-556 (2009)> =2009MNRAS.393..538J
ADC_Keywords: Associations, stellar ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; X-ray sources Keywords: stars: formation - stars: pre-main-sequence - stars: Wolf-Rayet - open clusters and associations: individual: Vela OB2 Abstract: We present the results of a photometric BVI survey of 0.9deg2 around the Wolf-Rayet binary gamma2 Vel and its early-type common proper motion companion gamma1 Vel (together referred to as the gamma Vel system). Several hundred pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars are identified and the youth of a subset of these is spectroscopically confirmed by the presence of lithium in their atmospheres, Halpha emission and high levels of X-ray activity. We show that the PMS stars are kinematically coherent and spatially concentrated around gamma Vel. The PMS stars have similar proper motions to gamma Vel, to main-sequence (MS) stars around gamma Vel and to early-type stars of the wider Vela OB2 association of which gamma2 Vel is the brightest member. Description: A photometric survey of an area around gamma Vel was performed at the Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory (CTIO) 0.9-m telescope. The survey was done in two parts in different years, but using the same instrumentation and filters, namely a Tek 2048x2048 CCD with a 13.5x13.5 arcmin2 field of view, the Harris B and V filters and a Kron-Cousins I filter. The first set of observations, described in Pozzo et al. (2000MNRAS.313L..23P), consisted of eight overlapping fields surveyed on the night beginning 1999 February 8. The second set of observations consisted of 20 fields which were surveyed on the nights beginning 2002 February 8, 10 and 11. File Summary:

Note (1): Night the spectra were obtained: 1 = 1999 November 24 2 = 1999 November 25 Note (2): a negative value indicates absorption Note (3): a zero uncertainty indicates that the quoted EW(Li) is a 2σ upper limit. Note (4): Comments as follows: SB2 = double peaked ccf SB2? = possible double peaked ccf RR = star is probably a rapid rotator (in excess of ~=30km/s) E = early-type spectrum Note (5): Membership flag as follows: 1 = member 2 = non-member 3 = uncertain membership
