Abstract (from CDS):

We present the discovery of a 360 au separation T3 companion to the tight (3.1 au) M4.5+M6.5 binary 2MASS J02132062+3648506. This companion was identified using Pan-STARRS 1 data and despite its relative proximity to the Sun (22.2–4.0+6.4 pc; Pan-STARRS 1 parallax) and brightness (J = 15.3), it appears to have been missed by previous studies due to its position near a diffraction spike in 2MASS. The close M dwarf binary has active X-ray and Hα emission and shows evidence for UV flares. The binary's weak GALEX UV emission and strong Na I 8200 Å Na absorption lead us to an age range of ∼1-10 Gyr. Applying this age range to evolutionary models implies that the wide companion has a mass of 0.063 ± 0.009 M. 2MASS J0213+3648 C provides a relatively old benchmark close to the L/T transition and acts as a key, older comparison to the much younger early-T companions HN Peg B and GU Psc b.
