Naturevolume 168page555 (1951) | Download Citation



THE use of an interferometer aerial system on a wave-length of 3.7 m. to measure the positions of a number of radio stars has already been described1. The present communication contains the results of recent more accurate determinations of the positions of four intense radio stars with this interferometer, together with results for the same stars obtained by using another interferometer the individual aerials of which employ parabolic reflectors. This latter interferometer has been used at wave-lengths of 3.7 m. and 1.4 m.
