Abstract (from CDS):

Relative astrometry is presented for 198 observations of 160 double stars. The data were obtained at the 2.15 m telescope at the Complejo Astronómico El Leoncito (Argentina) with a multianode microchannel array (MAMA) detector system. Five high-quality nondetections are also reported. When judged against ephemeris positions for binaries with very well determined orbits, the separation residuals exhibit a root mean square deviation of 13.2+3.4–1.9 mas and the position angle residuals exhibit rms deviation of 2°.9+0°.8–0°.5. Factors affecting the measurement precision are discussed.
