[8.14] Revised Orbit for the Single Line Spectroscopic Binary Theta Draconis

M. H. Slovak (LSU), T. G. Barnes (Univ. Texas, Austin)

Revised orbital elements are presented for the bright (V = 4.01) single line spectroscopic binary Theta Draconis = HD 144284 = BD+58 1608 = SAO 29765 (F8IV) using nearly eighty years of radial velocity data. The most recent measurements were obtained during calibration of the McDonald Observatory 2.1m coude radial velocity spectrometer.
