I found something unusual.


RS 1190-102-8-12673786-101 ABA

Obviously this should be a yellow dwarf, but it's not... It's smaller than the red dwarf it orbits with!

Here is a better comparison. Note- there are five stars in the system.

The red dwarf itself seems to be far larger than it should be too.

I have seen this kind of problem during my project

When I was trying to figure out what kind of star I should use for the smallest stars, I messed with the categories and levels when suddenly a small red star became bigger then the whole system, spanning 200 AU in Radius :O

It was an L Star, a Brown Dwarf.
The luminosity had to be something like 0.0000001 to make it's radius look good

Talyn, you may simply specify custom radius in the script, like for planets.
