ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION OBSERVATIONS OF CA K-LINE VARIATIONS IN THE BETA-PICTORIS DISC.
MON NOT R ASTRON SOC
L65 - L68.
We present observations of the beta Pictoris circumstellar Ca II K line, obtained with the new Ultra-High-Resolution facility (UHRF) at the Anglo-Australian Telescope. The resolving power was R greater than or similar to 900000, and these data therefore comprise the highest resolution observations yet obtained of this object. Observations were obtained on three nights in 1993 (May 11, August 26 and August 29), and significant temporal variability was observed, including previously unobserved changes in the profile of the main circumstellar component.
