    The planet around 61 Cygni B was first reported in the s by the American astronomer Thomas J. J. See (), then at the Leander McCormack Observatory. See specialized in studying binary stars to determine their orbits, and it was the gravitational effect of this planet on the motion of 61 Cyg B that led him to submit an article.   Such a small angle needs excellent telescope and technique to detect. To comprehend the difficulty, I give you one of Hirshfeld's analogies: the parallax angle of the star 61 Cygni, first found to be " (compare with today's " value), is "equivalent to the apparent size of a Manhattan taxi cab as viewed from Mexico city.".

      61 Cygni is a binary star system in the constellation Cygnus, consisting of a pair of K-type dwarf stars that orbit each other in a period of about years. 61 Cygni first attracted the attention of astronomers when its large proper motion was first demonstrated by Giuseppe Piazzi in   He chose for his purpose the binary star 61 Cygni, which was the star with the most rapid apparent motion then known and therefore likely to be fairly near us, although only of the sixth magnitude. He found for it a parallax of ″ a value which agrees well with more modern determinations. Encyclopædia Britannica – – Volume

61 Cygni / ˈ s ɪ ɡ n i / is a binary star system in the constellation Cygnus, consisting of a pair of K-type dwarf stars that orbit each other in a period of about years. Of apparent magnitude andrespectively, they can be seen with binoculars in city skies or with the naked eye in rural areas without photopollution.

61 Cygni first attracted the attention of astronomers when Constellation: Cygnus. Parallax (from Ancient Greek παράλλαξις (parallaxis), meaning 'alternation') is a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight, and is measured by the angle or semi-angle of inclination between those two lines.

Due to foreshortening, nearby objects show a larger parallax than farther objects when observed from different. He reported that 61 Cygni had a parallax of ", and that the star was about 3 parsecs ( light years) away (Hirshfeld ).

Comparison of two methods of determining the position angle. This object was the first star to have its parallax measured. This was done in by German astronomer Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel.

Because the stars are so far apart, they take many years to orbit each other – perhaps as many as years. The parsec (symbol: pc) is a unit of length used to measure the large distances to astronomical objects outside the Solar parsec is approximately equal to 31 trillion kilometres ( × 10 13 km), 19 trillion miles ( × 10 13 mi), orastronomical units (au), and equates to about light-years.A parsec is obtained by the use of parallax and trigonometry, and is defined metric (SI) units: ×10¹⁶ m, ~31 petametres.

Hall, Asaph III Parallax of a Lyræ and 61 Cygni by Asaph Hall (Book) 11 editions published The orbit of Iapetus, the outer satellite of Saturn by Asaph Hall (Book). The first measurements of a stellar parallax were made by Friedrich Bessel infor the star 61 Cygni.

Distance measurement by parallax is a special case of the principle of triangulation, where one can solve for all the sides and angles in a network of triangles if, in addition to all the angles in the network, the length of only one side. 61 Cygni was the first star to have its parallax measured, but also is a difficult case due to its [+] large proper motion.

These two images, stacked in red and blue and taken almost exactly.The two values given by AmY for ~ Lyrae are, of course, earlier than BESSEL'S results for 61 Cygni.

The parallax of 61 Cygni given by AUWERS resulted from rediscussions of the observations of JOgNSON and BESSEL. In spite of the labour of GILL and others progress was painfully by: 5.Bessel observed stellar parallax = was the first to use parallax to calculate the distance to a star.

After observing that 61 Cygni (star that had a high velocity in the plane of the sky) had moved in an ellipse over a long period of time, Bessel thought it was caused by the motion of the earth around the sun and accurately demonstrated.
