Can anyone please help me with the limitations and strengths of methods used for measuring the distances to astronomical objects. The methods are :
- Parallax
- Luminosity
- cepheid variables
- Hubble’s law
- eclipsing binaries

you could search for the term 'cosmic distance ladder' which is used to mean the chain of overlapping techniques used to measure astronomical distance

and look at the usual sites
wikipedia
space.com
astronomy.com https://astronomy.com/news/2019/07/t...istance-ladder
physics.org http://www.iop.org/resources/topic/archive/cosmic/
