Binary stars are numerous (e.g. Sirius). We can see orbital motion of Sirius B around Sirius A. Masses of stars determine the gravitational force, and thus the acceleration of the stars. A little gravitational physics. If M >>mV2 = GM/rOr M=V2r/G. From observations of motions of binary stars, one can determine their masses.
