A preliminary distance etimate to SMC 108.1.14904, a long-period eclipsing binary in the Small Magellanic Cloud, is presented. The binary system contains two bright, non-active G-type giants. Its orbital period is 185 days and the orbit is circular. Using surface brightness calibration, we obtain a distance modulus to the system of (m-M)= 19.02 ± 0.04 (statistical) ± 0.05 (systematic) mag, where the systematic error is dominated by uncertainties in the surface brightness calibration. This is a second eclipsing binary in the SMC analysed by our team.
The RV analysis tool integrates widely used methods of radial velocity determination (CCF, TODCOR, BF) in an easy to use graphical environment. No advanced knowledge of these methods is required to use it. The obtained velocities may be immediately analyzed with the same tool as it comprises flexible fitting of orbital parameters, which includes the third body influence and pulsational velocities of the components. These features together help to establish the most accurate combination of templates, spectrum range, and method. Scripting functionality is to be implemented in the future.
