Abstract (from CDS):

The components of the wide binary HD 219542 were recently found to differ in metallicity by about 0.1 dex (Gratton et al., 2001ExA....12..107G, Paper 1). In this paper, we present the results of 2 years of high precision radial velocity monitoring of these stars performed at the Telecopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG) using the high resolution spectrograph SARG. No indication for radial velocity variations above the measurement errors (∼5m/s) was found for the metal richer component A. This allows us to place upper mass-limits for planets around this star. HD 219542 B instead shows a low amplitude variation with a 112 day period at a confidence level of ∼96-97%. This might suggest the presence of a Saturn-mass planet, although it is still possible that these variations are due to moderate activity of the star. Tests based on variations of bisectors, stellar magnitude and line equivalent widths were inconclusive so far.
