An empirical approach
An Empirical Approach

  • No reliance on atmosphere or evolution models

  • Broadly applicable, without need for a parallax


A photometric calibration
A Photometric Calibration

  • J,H,K  MJ,H,K  M★, d(Delfosse et al. 2000)

  • V - K  [Fe/H], M★ (Schlaufman & Laughlin 2010)

  • r - J  MJ  M★ (West et al. 2005, Delfosse et al.)

  • a/R★ M★ (Seager, Mallen-Ornelas 2003)

An example: K-band magnitude to Mass, distance
