Halo ratio from ground based all-sky imaging
The halo ratio (HR) is a quantitative measure characterizing the occurrence of the 22 halo peak associated with cirrus. We propose to obtain it from an approximation to the scattering phase function (SPF) derived from ...
VIRAC: The VVV Infrared Astrometric Catalogue
We present VIRAC version 1, a near-infrared proper motion and parallax catalogue of the VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) survey for 312 587 642 unique sources averaged across all overlapping pawprint and tile images ...
WISDOM Project - III. Molecular gas measurement of the supermassive black hole mass in the barred lenticular galaxy NGC4429
As part of the mm-Wave Interferometric Survey of Dark Object Masses project we present an estimate of the mass of the supermassive black hole (SMBH) in the nearby fast-rotating early-type galaxy NGC4429, that is barred and ...
VICS82 : the VISTA-CFHT Stripe 82 near-infrared survey
We present the VISTA-CFHT Stripe 82 (VICS82) survey: a near-infrared (J+Ks) survey covering 150 square degrees of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) equatorial Stripe 82 to an average depth of J=21.9 AB mag and Ks=21.4 ...
Primeval very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs. I. Six new L subdwarfs, classification and atmospheric properties
We have conducted a search for L subdwarf candidates within the photometric catalogues of the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey and Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Six of our candidates are confirmed as L subdwarfs spectroscopically ...
