Modern methods in the astrometry of double stars

  • Laurence W. Fredrick
Part II: Astrometric Binaries—Astrometry


The techniques for studying double stars continue to evolve in a predictable way. The most recent major breakthroughs have been the area scanner and speckle interferometry. On the horizon looms the application of large format CCDs which will replace the photographic plate for many astrometric problems.
