Abstract
We report a new determination of [O/Fe, the relative logarithmicabundance of O/Fe with respect to the Sun, for the very metal-poor starBD+23 3130 ([Fe/H=-2.6). The value was derived from the forbidden line[O I at 630 nm and from six weak Fe II lines, with a S/N ratiosubstantially larger than those obtained before, thanks to theefficiency of the VLT-UVES instrument at Paranal. We obtain[O/Fe=0.71+/-0.25, a value 0.36 dex higher than the value obtained fromthe same lines by Fulbright and Kraft [AJ 118 (1999) 527, but 0.46lower than the one derived by Israelian et al. [ApJ 507 (1998) 805 fromthe UV OH bands.
