Fig. 8


Sky-projected orbit of the HD 59686 binary system assuming values of i = 50° and Ω = 45° for the orbital inclination and longitude of the ascending node, respectively. Labeled in the orbit are the positions of each star as a function of time. The green symbol marks the position of HD 59686 A and HD 59686 B at the time of our LBT observations. The dotted line is the line of nodes, and the letter P denotes the positions of the stars at periastron. The yellow dot marks the center of mass of the system.
