Abstract: AbstractWe report astrometric results for seven 6.7 GHz CH3OH and one 22 GHz H2O masers in the Perseus arm with VLBA and VERA observations. Among the eight sources, we succeeded in obtaining trigonometric parallaxes for all sources, except G098.03+1.44 at 6.7 GHz band. By combining our results with previous astrometry results (Choi et al. 2014), we determined an arm width of 0.41 kpc and a pitch angle of 8.2 ± 2.5 deg for the Perseus arm. By using a large sample of the Perseus arm (26 sources), we examined the…
