on to system velocities
After calculating my WD radial velocities, I moved on to calculating the system velocities of each of the binaries. The values seemed to range from reasonable for some of the binaries, to super weird for others. I compared my values to the ones that Dylan worked with, and some of them seem to be an average of the system velocities for the multiple exposures. In order to better gauge my error, I'm going to make a histogram of the differences of the system velocities between each exposure.
