    • Characterization of the VVV Survey RR Lyrae Population across the Southern Galactic Plane 

      Minniti, Dante; Dékány, Istvan; Majaess, Daniel; Palma, Tali; Pullen, Joyce; Rejkuba, Marina; Alonso-García, Javier; Catelan, Marcio; Ramos, Rodrigo Contreras; Gonzalez, Oscar A.; Hempel, Maren; Irwin, Mike; Lucas, Philip W.; Saito, Roberto K.; Tissera, Patricia; Valenti, Elena; Zoccali, Manuela (2017-03-27)
      Deep near-IR images from the VISTA Variables in the Vía Láctea (VVV) Survey were used to search for RR Lyrae stars in the Southern Galactic plane. A sizable sample of 404 RR Lyrae of type ab stars was identified across a ...
    • A first catalogue of automatically selected ultraviolet-excess sources from the UVEX survey 

      Verbeek, Kars; de Groot, Eelco; Groot, Paul J.; Scaringi, Simone; Drew, J.E.; Greimel, Robert; Irwin, Mike; Gonzalez-Solares, Eduardo; Gaensicke, Boris T.; Casares, Jorge; Corral-Santana, Jesus M.; Deacon, Niall; Steeghs, Danny (2012-02)
      We present the first catalogue of point-source ultraviolet (UV)-excess sources selected from the UV-Excess Survey of the Northern Galactic Plane (UVEX). UVEX images the Northern Galactic Plane in the U, g, r and He Iota ...
    • FSR 1716: A new Milky Way Globular Cluster confirmed using VVV RR Lyrae stars

M.; Geisler, Douglas; Gonzalez, Oscar A.; Gran, Felipe; Hagdu, Gergely; Irwin, Mike; Ivanov, Valentin D.; Kurtev, Radostin; Lucas, Philip W.; Majaess, Daniel; Mauro, Francesco; Moni-Bidin, Christian; Navarrete, Camila; Alegría, Sebastian Ramírez; Saito, Roberto K.; Valenti, Elena; Zoccali, Manuela (2017-03-24)
      We use deep multi-epoch near-IR images of the VISTA Variables in the V\'ia L\'actea (VVV) Survey to search for RR Lyrae stars towards the Southern Galactic plane. Here we report the discovery of a group of RR Lyrae stars ...
    • A new near-IR window of low extinction in the Galactic plane 

      Minniti, Dante; Saito, Roberto K.; Gonzalez, Oscar A.; Alonso-García, Javier; Rejkuba, Marina; Barbá, Rodolfo; Irwin, Mike; Kammers, Roberto; Lucas, Philip; Majaess, Daniel; Valenti, Elena (2018-08-01)
      Aims. The windows of low extinction in the Milky Way (MW) plane are rare but important because they enable us to place structural constraints on the opposite side of the Galaxy, which has hither to been done rarely. Methods. ...
