Abstract

Radial-velocities of W Sgr from 28 coudé spectrograms taken during 1980-83 are presented along with velocities of certain standard stars. A mean velocity of -28.0 ± 0.7 km s⁻¹ for a mean epoch of 1981.96 is found. The 1980-83 data indicate that the orbital period is longer than the 80 years previously suggested and that the spectroscopie orbit cannot be obtained at this time. Further observations with high accuracy are required so as to obtain the distance and mass of this speckle and spectroscopie binary.
