This proper-motion star (Gr 469) has a predicted Mv= + 11.4 and the high tangential velocity of 263 km s⁻¹. It shows both hydrogen and helium absorption lines well represented by a field of 8 megagauss. The temperature is 16,000 and the radius normal. The resolved Hβ Zeeman components are abnormally sharp; a not completely explained feature exists at λ5050. It is suggestive that about half the known degenerates with resolved Zeeman components have both hydrogen and helium in their atmospheres.
