We used a new method of distance determination, based on carbon AGB stars, to derive distances to nine galaxies in the Local and Sculptor Group.
We present reddening maps of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, based on color measurements of the red clump stars.
Today we are celebrating with our colleague Darek Graczyk, who obtained the title of doctor habilitated!
Metallicity is a vital parameter that impacts classical Cepheids’ luminosities. In all observed bands, metal-poor Cepheids in the SMC are intrinsically fainter than their more metal-rich counterparts in the LMC and MW.
SMC distance determined with the accuracy of 3% using binary systems composed of giants.
