Intheoriginaltext,twominorerrorsappear.Firstly,thereisconfusion with the terms “disk size” and “disk radius”. Throughout the text, the disk size expressed in the units of Re always corresponds to the disk radius. However, in Sect. 5.4 of the original text, the disk size expressed in the unit of milliarcsec (mas) correspondstothediskdiameter,andnottheradius.Secondly,there † Deceased. is an error in the caption of Fig. 5, where it is stated that the full widthathalfmaximum(FWHM)of74mascorrespondstoadisk size of 518Re. This is the correct value for the disk radius (not the size), but the unit should be Rp and not Re. This corresponds to the disk radius of 396Re.
