|Cluster population incompleteness bias and the value of H(0) from the Tully-Fisher B0(T) relation|
Data on the Virgo cluster and ten more distant clusters are the basis ofan evaluation of the influence of the cluster population incompletenessbias on the B-band Tully-Fisher relation. The data are well fitted by atheoretical curve that is obtained for a Hubble constant value of 72 +or - 5 km/sec per Mpc in the de Vaucouleurs local scale, confirming theconstant's previous determination in light of a study of the Malmquistbias for field galaxies. The true value for the Hubble constant isconcluded to lie within the 50-75 range, depending on the primarycalibration.
|Lunar occultation summary. III|
Observations of 242 photoelectric lunar occultation events studied atErwin W. Fick Observatory are reported. Approximately one-fourth ofthese are reappearances. From each observation are estimated the minimummagnitude differences between the observed object and possibleundetected companions. Occultation observations are given of 23 starsbrighter than 6th mag, including Alpha Vir, Beta-1 Sco, Mu Gem, Xi-2Sgr, Zeta Tau, Lambda Gem, and Beta Cap.
|Photoelectric measurements of lunar occultations. VIII|
Photoelectric timings are reported for 276 lunar occultation eventswhich were observed between March 1975 and February 1976. The timings(in UTC) are based on Loran G equipment of a lunar laser-ranging groupor on WWV signals. Angular diameters are determined for HR 5301, HD176124, Chi-1-Orionis, and HR 601. Twenty cases of possible or actualdouble stars, including Beta Capricorni, are noted along with oneprobable triple system (51 Piscium). Several technical and computationaldifficulties encountered in this program are discussed.
