Institute of Astronomy

Stellar Radial Velocities and Binary-Star Orbit Determination

This is the longest-standing of all the Institute's research projects. The majority of the observations is made on-site with the radial-velocity instrument at the 36-inch telescope, but use is also made of analogous equipment overseas. The observations are mostly of binary stars. More binary-star orbits have been determined here than at any other observatory in the world.
