HD 151613 is a binary star[5] system in the northern circumpolar constellation of Draco. It is visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 4.84.[2] The distance to this star, as estimated from its annual parallax shift of 39.3 mas,[1] is 83 light years. It is moving closer to the Earth with a heliocentric radial velocity of −2 km/s.[4]

This is a single-lined spectroscopic binary[3] system with an orbital period of 363.57 days and an eccentricity of 0.35.[5] The pair were resolved through speckle interferometry in 1977, showing an angular separation of 0.041. They were later resolved in 1981 with a separation of 0.047″, but were unresolved during 20 other attempts between 1976–1991.[9] The system is a source of X-ray emission.[10] The visible component is an F-type main-sequence star with a stellar classification of F2 V.[3] It is around 2.3[4] billion years old with a projected rotational velocity of 48 km/s.[7]
