A new radial velocity study has been made of the highly eccentric, early-type binary BD -1° 1004 using spectra from the Kavalur Observatory. All available archival material has also been reexamined. An attempt has been made to correct for line ‘dragging’ by the secondary spectrum to improve the fit of the observed data to the orbital solutions. It is found that an earlier suggestion of apsidal regression is still possible although ω is probably constant within the errors. There remain problems and inconsistencies with other orbital elements, in particular K1 and γ

Continuous Article Publishing mode
Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
