how will you find the distance to the star sirius using parallax method using eath based telescpoes?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i know the distances and angle in association with the equation....but i dont get how u accuatly get those data. The very first step in achieving those data.

like for eg ...the distance is 2.63 parsecs and the parallax angle is 0.38 arcseconds.....how did they actually get those data ????

i know if you find one of those data ...it will help the forumlar :)

just dont understand how they got them :)
