Abstract: Astrometric planet searches with the GRAVITY VLTI instrument will be able to detect planets in the range from a few Earth-masses to Neptune-masses around nearby low-mass stars. High-resolution Lucky Imaging with AstraLux has provided a sample of nearby M dwarf binaries which defines a potential target list for astrometric planet detection with GRAVITY. We present the GRAVITY planet detection limits for one of the M dwarf binaries detected in the AstraLux survey.
