AbstractWith adaptive optics imaging at Keck observatory, we have discovered a substellar companion to the F6 Pleiades star HD23514, one of the dustiest main-sequence stars known to date (L IR/L * 2%). This is one of the first brown dwarfs discovered as a companion to a star in the Pleiades. The 0.06 M ⊙ late-M secondary has a projected separation of 360AU. The scarcity of substellar companions to stellar primaries in the Pleiades combined with the extremely dusty environment make this a unique system to study. © 2012 The American Astronomical Society.
