Two ways in which these CG volume holograms can be recorded is by either the single parallax method or the full parallax method.
However, the parallax method can only be applied for stars which are reasonably close to us, since beyond distances of 1600 light years, the angles of inclination are too small to be measured by the Hipparcos satellite, a precursor to Gaia.
In the 19th century, astronomers learned how to convert a star's apparent brightness into its intrinsic brightness (luminosity) by measuring its distance using the parallax method.
The parallax method is feasible only if the basis is not too small with respect to the distance of the object.
After the 1874 transit, astronomers realized that Halley's parallax method would not nail down the value of the astronomical unit as precisely as they had hoped.
9-meter telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile to measure the distances to the red dwarfs using the classic trigonometric parallax method.
FEEBLEST DWARF A team of Chilean and US astronomers using the classic parallax method have measured the distance to a cool object (probably a brown dwarf) known as DEN 0255-4700 and found that it is the nearest known object of its spectral type.
Moreover, as a practical matter, few distances in modern astronomy are directly measured by the parallax method anymore.
The most common way of measuring the distances of the nearby stars is the parallax method.
