Abstract

One-thousand six-hundred eighty-five measurements of 385 binary star systems are presented, obtained during 1982-1989 by means of speckle interferometry at the 1.8-m Perkins telescope on Anderson Mesa, Arizona. These observations were collected as part of a systematic program in which frequent speckle observations of nearby binary systems were to be used in an attempt to detect unseen companions through the analysis of residual motions in wide, visual binaries. This is the second of two papers in which these observations are presented; results of the planet search will be discussed in the final paper of this effort.
