Abstract:

For HD29907 results are presented from radial-velocity monitoring and from photometric observations on the uvby system. The object is a binary system at a distance of around 50 parsecs from the sun. The primary component is a G2VI star. The secondary component remains unidentified. The absolute visual magnitude of the primary component is , and the effective temperature and abundance of heavy elements are given by and [Fe/H]=-1.7, respectively. The V magnitude appears variable with a range of at least 0.12 magnitudes. Colour indices appear stable. The system has a radial velocity of , an orbital period of 29.9 days and an eccentricity of 0.41. The total space velocity with respect to the galactic center is 340 and the object approaches escape velocity.

Key words: stars: binaries: spectroscopic --- stars: kinematics --- stars: Population II --- stars: subdwarfs --- stars: HD 29907
