Overview of the host star spectral types and rotation periods (left), projected rotational velocities (middle), and companion spectral types and separations (right). Systems with stellar obliquity constraints are plotted in dark blue. Companions with obliquity constraints in this study reside within ≈250 au where orbital motion is more readily detectable.
