Find the biggest Star in Space Engine

Rule 1: It has to be in a randomly generated Galaxy, (IE: Far from the Milky Way)

Rule 2: Can not be a named star (IE: Mu Cephei, The Garnet Star, WOH G64 etc. Has to be RS - )

Rule 3: The submitter of a star that holds the current record for more then 3 days will be able to select a name for that star. The name of the star will stay even if a larger star has been found.

Rule 4: Any star lasting as the record for an undisclosed amount of time will gain a +1 Reputation point commending you for the discovery.

Rule 5: A single user (1) can only have one star on the list at a time. Any new stars that are larger will replace the last submitted star, do not submit any smaller stars then your largest. (Stars cannot be submitted more then once, IE: an old star that was removed cannot be claimed by someone else and submitted)

This is an All Time challenge, post your biggest stars and proof of Diameter, and I will keep updating this list depending on their size.

Current Largest Known Stars:

Instructions / How to submit
After you submit I will personally visit the star system and confirm it and then place it in the list if it beats any of the top 5.
Use this format when submitting:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Code
[Xsize=12]Size in AU, Star type - your name here - (the ranking compared to the current stars)[/Xsize]
[Xcolor=yellow]RS location code here (What version you found it)[/Xcolor]


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other giant stars that didn't make the cut or have been pushed off the list but are still extremely large:

Be sure you select the star itself, not the system barycenter (SE may show incorrect diameter in case of binary star). Make selection using F2 system browser.

I just went on a 40 minute journey scanning many many galaxies, I can't seem to find anything bigger then the 10.447 AU Giant (pic in OP).

But my method might be flawed, because I've found some 10.00 AU giants that are very very dim compared to others, so maybe I'm looking in the wrong areas since up magnitude to see star structure of galaxy.

(Also, another interesting note: Most of the largest stars of a galaxy have the numbers very close to and around 0-0-0, you can also go to any galaxy and find any RS code from that galaxy then take the last 3 sets of numbers and put them at 0 in the object scanner you can instantly scan for red giants most of the time, sometimes blue giants show up though.)

That is not a procedural star, you have select its barycenter (not the star itself).

I know this does not qualify but still bigger than anything on the list.

You have selected the baycenter not the star.

He selected the star. His camera is following the barycenter, but the star is selected.

Great stuff, congratulations on beating the record, if your star is still at the top in 3 days you can give it a name it will always be known by.

Also, like Robbie said please use the spoiler tags to hide your images as they stretch the page.

EDIT:

Well done amwhere, I have updated the list again.

I once found a 12 AU-sized star... but I didn't take a pic of it.

Nice, yes I remember finding a few 12 AU+ stars back in 0.94 but It seems the generation has been changed a bit, I wonder if this list will break 11 AU.

Theoretically there should be stars (extremely rare few) that can be around 25 AU.
