Astrometry is at the threshold of serious adjustments for the reason that this decade, by myself, is witnessing an development of stellar positions similar to the complete development of the former centuries. The Hipparcos satellite tv for pc has concluded its observations, and the catalog is in training. initial effects guarantee that the Hipparcos catalog will supply positions, parallaxes and annual right motions for over 100,000 stars with accuracies of 1.5 milliarcseconds. additionally, the Tycho catalog will supply positions of approximately 30 milliarcseconds accuracy for over 1 million stars, and annual right motions with three milliarcsecond accuracy will consequently be ob­ tained by way of first epoch positions from the Astrographic Catalog. Optical interferometers at the flooring are starting operation, and those tools grants observational accuracies of roughly one milliarcsecond. additionally, the conventional reference body according to the thrill­ damental Catalog of brilliant stars is being changed by way of the extragalactic ref­ erence body, in line with radio resources with accuracies of 1 milliarcsecond. hence, astrometry will swap from a primary reference body outlined when it comes to the dynamical reference body of the sunlight approach with accuracies of a hundred milliarcseconds to a space-fixed, extragalactic reference body with accuracies of 1 milliarcsecond. destiny astrometric observations will be within the 1 -100 milliarcsecond accuracy diversity. there are many ideas for destiny astrometric tools in area. almost all these supplies sub-milliarcsecond astrometric accuracies.

Measurements at two different wavelengths are used to correct the measured delays for refractive index fluctuations in the turbulent atmosphere. Measurements of stellar positions by the Mark III in a subset of the FK5 catalog, made at several epochs over a four-year period, have uncertainties of 10 to 20 mas (Hummel et al. 1994). The accuracy of the measurements is limited by systematic errors largely due to unmonitored changes in the baseline coordinates.

Binary stars Determinations of stellar masses should be better than about 2% in accuracy and should be accompanied by a determination of the absolute luminosities of the components to help distinguish between stellar evolution models (Andersen 1991).

One of the major uses of the Large Sky Surveys such as the Palomar and SERC Schmidt Surveys is the derivation of positions for faint objects discovered in the course of other surveys. The HST Guide Star Catalogue has proved to be of great help in deriving positions for such objects, but the well-known, and unavoidable, systematic errors in the GSC positions limit the accuracy of the final positions. 1 arcsecond in the final positions.
