HD 106515 is a binary star (and currently visual triple system) in the constellation of Virgo.

The A and B stars are both G-type main-sequence stars. They have separate entries in the Luyten Two-Tenths catalogue (LTT), a catalog of high-proper-motion stars. The primary (the A star) is LTT 4599 (in the starbox) and the B star is LTT 4598 (G8 dwarf, mass 0.89). The two are gravitationally bound and separated at 310 AU. The binary semimajor axis is 390 AU.[2]

The third star in the visual triple, BD-06° 3533, is likely not bound with LTT 4599 and LTT 4598.[2]

Planetary system[edit]

From 1998 to 2012, the system was under observation from the CORALIE spectrograph at the La Silla Observatory.

In 2012, a long-period, wide-orbiting planet was deduced at LTT 4599 / HD 106515 A by radial velocity. This was published in November. The planet has been pulled to an eccentric orbit by the B star LTT 4598.
