107 Aquarii (abbreviated 107 Aqr) is a double star in the equatorial constellation of Aquarius. 107 Aquarii is the Flamsteed designation although it also bears the Bayer designation i2 Aquarii. The pair have an angular separation of 6.787 arcseconds.[3] They have a combined apparent visual magnitude of +5.305,[2] with individual magnitudes of 5.72 and 6.72.[3] The annual parallax shift is 13.66 milliarcseconds with an 8% margin of error.[1] This indicates the system is at a distance of around 240 light-years (74 parsecs) from Earth.
