DQ Tau

(young binary star system)

DQ Tau is a non-eclipsing double-line spectroscopic binary of young (T Tauri) stars on the order of 0.65 solar masses, about 140 parsecs distant, with an orbital period of 15 days with high eccentricity that nears 8 radii at its smallest. It has been studied for X-ray emissions attributed to the orbit's effect on their colliding magnetospheres.
