Journal: Transactions of the Astronomical Observatory of Yale University, vol. 15, pp Bibliographic Code: TOYalA. The internal accuracy of Yale parallaxes is discussed and its dependence upon various arguments.

The probable errors of unit weight of the parallaxes are used as a measure of the accuracy, after elimination of variations depending on the measurer and on the epoch of : Gustav Land. The Messrs. Repsold have established, and for the present seem likely to maintain, a practical monopoly in the construction of heliometers.

That completed by them for the observatory of Yale College in leaves so little to be desired as to show excellence not to be the exclusive result of competition. The new catalogue (the third from Yale) has been compiled by MISS JENKINS from data available up to May, It contains the parallaxes of stars, nearly all determined at fourteen observatories during the past forty years.

The attainable accuracy of photographic trigonometric parallaxes may be improved by the use of modern measuring engines, larger number of exposures, facilitated by increased speed of emulsions, more refined knowledge of reduction to absolute parallax.

Systematic errors remain an obstacle both in trigonometric and statistical parallaxes. Van De Kamp P. () Path of Single Star. Relative Parallax, Proper Motion, Quadratic Time Effect.

Astrophysics and Space Science Library (A Series of Books on the Recent Developments of Space Science and of General Geophysics and Astrophysics Published in Connectionm with the Journal Space Science Reviews), vol Alden spent twenty years at the Yale Observatory working on the long-focus refractor to determine parallaxes of southern stars.

He also concerned himself with a study of the probable errors in the parallax plates taken in Johannesburg. Fellow astronomers attributed much of the Yale Observatory's success in this period to Alden's diligent.

The work begins with a description of the reflecting telescope, with an inch aperture and feet focal length, the largest telescope in the world at the time, which was constructed in by John and his father William.

Schlesinger's work in a class by itself. Every care was taken to obviate the various sources of sys-tematic error, hour-angle error, etc., but doubtless the greater part of the increased accuracy obtained was due to the method.

The in looking in a reference book, the student finds a published value of m/s. Since both of these are measurements, and therefore have some uncertainty associated with them, we cannot be absolutely sure that Systematic errors are ones that consistently cause the.

Innes used a blink comparator to examine a photographic plate showing an area of 60 square degrees around Alpha Centauri, comparing a plate with one taken in Forty hours of painstaking study revealed a star with a proper motion similar to Alpha Centauri (” per year), and about two degrees away from it.

Provenance This database table was created by the HEASARC in April based on CDS Catalog I/ filethe Hipparcos Main Catalog. It was updated in October to fix some entries which were missing coordinates. Sampling Errors.

Problems can also arise in the sampling process. To get the most accurate results, chemists must either take samples from a large population size or obtain multiple samples from the population size selected.

Errors can arise from the precise conditions required to collect that sample size, or from the ability of the population.
