Something seems to be wrong with this page. The primary Psi Serpentis (HD 140538, HIP 77052) is at a parallax of 68.16 mas. Per SIMBAD other two stars that are listed (HD 140527, HIP 77043) and (HD 140489, HIP 77034) are at 3.17 and 5.64 mas, respectively. I think they are line-of-sight companions only. ARICNS only shows this as a double-star. Could somebody please confirm this information and cite sources? Thank you. — RJH 19:29, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

I removed the following unsourced entry as potentially misleading:
Orbiting this pair with a separation of 3.5 arcminutes is the +8.8 magnitude K-type Psi Serpentis C. Slightly closer, at a distance of 2.9 arcminutes, is the +10.4 magnitude Psi Serpentis D. The brightest companion, Psi Serpentis E, a magnitude +7.1 G-type giant, is also the most distant, being separated from the primary by 5.9 arcminutes, or at least 5200 Astronomical Units.[citation needed]
The SIMBAD entry indicates only that this is a double star system.—RJH (talk) 23:33, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
