The optical proper motions of HH 7-11 and Cepheus E.


Abstract (from CDS):

A key ingredient in understanding the dynamics of stellar outflows is their proper motion. We have used optical images in the [S II] emission at 6717/6731 Å and the red Digitized Palomar Observatory Sky Survey (DSS) plates to determine the proper motion of the HH 7-11 system and the optical knot of Cep E (HH 377). The DSS plate measurements span nearly 37 years for both HH 7-11 and HH 377 and have a wide field of view, which allows an accurate determination of the proper motions despite their relatively low angular resolution. The optical images, with higher angular resolution, cover a shorter period, 7 and 4 years, respectively, for HH 7-11 and HH 377 and have been used to complement the DSS measurements. From the DSS plates we have found that HH 377 has a proper motion of 0".031±0".003 yr–1 with P.A.=206°; i.e., it is moving away from IRAS 230111+63, which at a distance of 730 pc corresponds to a tangential velocity of 107±14 km.s–1. The values obtained from the optical images are consistent with these measurements. Similarly, the proper motions of HH 7-11 range from 0".015±0".009 yr–1 (HH 9) to 0".044±0".007 yr–1 (HH 11), and the flow is moving away from SVS 13 with mean P.A.∼136°. At a distance of 330 pc, these motions correspond to tangential velocities of ∼25-70 km.s–1, i.e., comparable to the original values obtained by Herbig & Jones (1983). The measurements from the optical CCD [S II] images are again consistent with these motions, although in detail there are some differences, particularly for HH 7 and HH 10.
