Abstract: Optical-optical-optical triple resonance spectroscopy of $^{11}$BH isolates high-Rydberg states that form series converging to rotational state specific ionization potentials in the vibrational levels of $^{11}$BH$^{+}$ from $v^{+} = 0$ through $4$. Limits defined by a comprehensive fit of these series to state-detailed thresholds yield rovibrational constants describing the X$^{2}\Sigma^{+}$ state of $^{11}$BH$^{+}$. The data provide a first determination of the vibration-rotation interaction parameter ${\alpha}_{e} = 0.4821 $cm$^{-1}$ and a more accurate estimate of ${\omega}_{e} = 2526.58 $cm$^{-1}$ together with the higher-order anharmonic terms ${\omega}_{e}x_{e} = 61.98 $cm$^{-1}$ and ${\omega}_{e}y_{e} = -1.989 $cm$^{-1}$. The deperturbation and global fit of series to state-detailed limits also yields a precise value of the adiabatic ionization potential of $^{11}$BH of $79120.3(1) $cm$^{-1}$, or $9.81033(1) $eV.$\;$ High precision is afforded here by the use of graphical analysis techniques, narrow bandwidth laser systems, and an analysis of newly observed, high-principal quantum number Rydberg states that conform well with a Hund's case (d) electron-core coupling limit.
