HR 7578 (V4200 Sgr) is a BY Draconis variable binary star located in the night sky at RA 19h 54m 17s and Dec −23° 56′ 28″ in the constellation of Sagittarius. The stars have a total Proper Motion of 0.426 "/yr.
The two stars, aged between 5x108 and 2x109 years old, appear to be remarkably similar. Both seem to be K3 V or K4V class stars. Both stars appear to have a mass of not less than 0.85±0.03 Solar masses, and an abundance of heavier elements.
They seem, on current evidence, to rotate in 16.35 ± 1 days.
