The Monitor Project: a search for low mass EBs in the young open cluster M50

Abstract:

We present preliminary results from a high-cadence photometric monitoring survey of the 130 Myr old open cluster M50. Using the semi-automated occultation detection process developed by Miller et al. [1], we uncovered eight low mass (< 1M⊙) eclipsing binary candidates in the cluster. Preliminary analysis of spectroscopic follow-up on five of these candidates confirms their binary nature. One candidate also exhibits a systemic velocity broadly consistent with the cluster radial velocity, in...
