Left panel: accuracy of the cross-correlation method using the errors of a single cross-correlation function. Right panel: accuracy of the refined method using the standard deviation between several cross-correlation functions for identical slit orientation as error estimate. The absolute stellar position angle is estimate for a high resolution spectra (R = 120 000) and for increasing apparent stellar radii. Filled squares: Rstar = 1 mas; filled triangles: Rstar = 2.5 mas; circles: Rstar = 5 mas; filled diamonds: Rstar = 10 mas and stars: Rstar = 15 mas. To improve the visibility of the error bars, the points for a given plate scale are slightly dispersed around that value.
Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.
Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
