|Title:||The unique spectrum of the brown dwarf candidate GD 165B and comparison to the spectra of other low-luminosity objects|

The paper compares the 6300-9000-A spectrum of GD 165 B to spectra of
three of the lowest-luminosity red objects known: LHS 2924, LHS 2065,
and PC 0025+0447. A temperature for this object is estimated using
extrapolations to absolute magnitude vs temperature for low-mass stars.
Two estimates are given for the location of GD 165 B on the H-R diagram.
Neither data point yields an unambiguous classification as either star
or brown dwarf for this object. It is concluded that GD 165 B has redder
colors and fainter absolute magnitudes than any known main sequence
star, with a spectrum unlike that of any known M dwarf.
