[8.04] On the Nature of V4142 Sagittarii

E.F.C. De Pietro, P.B. Etzel (San Diego State University)

Analysis of recent spectra obtained at Mount Laguna Observatory of the eclipsing binary V4142 Sagittarii has confirmed the hypothesis that the system is a classical Algol-type binary with an early B to early A V type primary and a late G to early K III type secondary. The masses of both components have been constrained and lie within typical ranges for such systems. Additionally, a previously published photographic light curve has constrained the radii and luminosities of both members. This work has been supported under NSF grant AST94-17035.
