VRI photometry of late dwarf common proper motion stars

  • 22 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


From the photometric observations of a sample of late dwarf common proper motion pairs it may be inferred that about 30%–50% of such systems contain one or more additional stellar components. A small fraction of such systems have separations in excess of 5000 A.U.
