Erratum: “Milky Way red dwarfs in the Borg survey; galactic scale-height and the distribution of dwarfs stars in WFC3 imaging".
Physics and Astronomy
In the catalog of M-dwarfs presented in Holwerda et al. (2014, H14 hereafter), there is an issue with the conversion from celestial coordinates to Galactic ones, done with PYEPHEM a wrapper around a trusted and vetted library ephermis. Here we present the corrected coordinates (using ASTROPY) and distances based on AB magnitudes. We have amended the tables and figures accordingly. The relation between vertical scale-height (z0) and M- dwarf subtype found in H14 is no longer present. We find a scale-height of 600 pc for all types, in part due to the presence of a second Galactic structural component.
