The designs in this series incorporate various representations for these systems:
Constellations: The constellation the system is located in, or associated with (Solar System), is mid-raised in the metal background of the design. Stars that are part of the perceived pattern in the constellation are represented by diamonds, while background stars are circles.
Stars: The largest metal circle in each design is to scale with the screen printed planets.
Planets: The order the planets are printed are innermost (top) to outermost (bottom). The metal circles also represent the planets, to a more clear scale, though they are not in any particular order.

Pin Details: 40mm, Silver metal with mid-raised metal constellation background, translucent enamel, screen print, cutouts
This system is 210 light years away from our Solar System and contains five exoplanets. Planets in this system have a close orbit to their star, too tight to fall within the Habitable Zone. Two planets are likely ice giants, while another two could be ocean worlds. HD-108236b is potentially a Super Earth; it could be a terrestrial or ocean world. The system's star is older than the sun and significantly lacks heavy metals, comparatively with only 50% the metallicity of the Solar System.
