Stars: individual: NLTT 51469
We demonstrate that the previously identified L/T transition brown dwarf SDSS J213154.43-011939.3 (SDSS 2131-0119) is a widely separated (82 ''.3, similar to 3830 au) common proper motion companion to the low-mass star NLTT 51469, which we reveal to be a close binary itself, separated by 0 ''.64 +/- 0 ''.01 (similar to 30 au). We find the proper motion of SDSS 2131-0119 of mu(alpha) cos delta = -100 +/- 20 mas yr(-1) and mu(delta) = -230 +/- 20 mas yr(-1) consistent with the proper motion of the primary provided by Gaia DR2: mu(alpha) cos delta = -95.49 +/- 0.96 mas yr(-1) and mu(delta) = -239.38 +/- 0.96 mas yr(-1). Based on optical and near-infrared spectroscopy, we classify the primary NLTT 51469A as an M3 +/- 1 dwarf, estimate photometrically the spectral type of its close companion NLTT 51469B at similar to M6, and confirm the spectral type of the brown dwarf to be L9 +/- 1. Using radial velocity, proper motion, and parallax, we derived the UVW Galactic space velocities of NLTT ...
