Establishing α Oph as a prototype rotator: Improved astrometric orbit
The nearby star a Oph (Ras Alhague) is a rapidly rotating A5IV star spinning at ∼ 89% of its breakup velocity. This system has been imaged extensively by interferometric techniques, giving a precise geometric model of the star's oblateness and the resul
