Stein 2051 is also called Gl 169.1. It is a binary star system consisting of a Red Dwarf (A) and a White Dwarf (B) separated by 39 AU in Camelopardalis. It is the nearest system of this configuration. Star A is the brighter of the two stars, but B is the more massive. Star A is also known as LHS 26. A vast asteroid belt exists around Star A at 2 AU. A small companion, probably a brown dwarf, but possibly small red dwarf, orbits Star A further out at 4.8 AU. Star B is also called G 175-34 and LHS 27.
