Outer Disc Rotation from Cepheid Variables

Abstract

We have measured radial velocities for a large number of classical cepheids of the Galaxy, particularly in the outer disc. We determine the rotation curve up to a galactocentric radius of 16 kpc. The results are then compared to similar studies using HII regions. We also consider some possible complications.
