Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of WISE 2150-7520AB (W2150AB): a widely separated (∼341 au) very low-mass L1 + T8 co-moving system. The system consists of the previously known L1 primary 2MASS J21501592-7520367 and a newly discovered T8 secondary found at position 21:50:18.99-75:20:54.6 (MJD = 57947) using Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer data via the Backyard Worlds: Planet 9 citizen science project. We present Spitzer ch1 and ch2 photometry (ch1-ch2 = 1.41 ± 0.04 mag) of the secondary and Folded-port InfraRed Echellette prism spectra of both components. The sources show no peculiar spectral or photometric signatures, indicating that each component is likely field age. Using all observed data and the Gaia DR2 parallax of 41.3593 ± 0.2799 mas for W2150A we deduce fundamental parameters of log(Lbol/L) = -3.69 ± 0.01, Teff = 2118 ± 62 K, and an estimated mass = 72 ± 12 MJup for the L1 and log(Lbol/L) = -5.64 ± 0.02, Teff = 719 ± 61 K, and an estimated mass = 34 ± 22 MJup for the T8. At a physical separation of ∼341 au this system has Ebin = 1041 erg, making it the lowest binding energy system of any pair with Mtot < 0.1 MSun not associated with a young cluster. It is equivalent in estimated mass ratio, Ebin, and physical separation to the ∼2 Myr M7.25 + M8.25 binary brown dwarf 2MASS J11011926-7732383AB (2M1101AB) found in the Chameleon star-forming region. W2150AB is the widest companion system yet observed in the field where the primary is an L dwarf or later.

CDS comments: The name "WISE 2150-7520AB" used in this article is incorrect. The acronym WISE is restricted to the WISE catalogue with the format JHHMMSS.SS+DDMMSS.S, It cannot be used as a common proper motion system descriptor like e.g. WDS. In SIMBAD the corresponding sources are SIPS J2150-7520 = WISE J215018.17-752039.5 = WISEA J215018.25-752039.7, and SIPS J2150-7520B.
