83 Aquarii (h Aquarii) is the Flamsteed designation for a binary star system in the equatorial constellation of Aquarius. The combined apparent visual magnitude of the pair is 5.43,[2] which is faintly visible to the naked eye. Based upon an annual parallax shift of 15.57 milliarcseconds,[1] it is located at a distance of around Script error: No such module "convert". from Earth.

Both stars are F-type main sequence stars.[3] The first component has an apparent magnitude of 6.20; the second is magnitude 6.34.[3] They are orbiting each other with a period of 21.84 years with an eccentricity of 0.388.[5]
