Default Eakhoi (Dark Nebula 2123)

Eakhoi is a high-population Aslan garden world in Khtoiakta subsector (K) of Dark Nebula, 9 parsecs trailing from Kusyu, about 4 parsecs from the Solomani Confederation border, and roughly 61 parsecs spinward of Terra.

What's really notable about this system is that the mainworld orbits a yellow supergiant, spectral type F8 Ia -- the same as Delta Canis Majoris. It's a busy little system, with 4 gas giants, 1 asteroid belt, and 9 other worlds.

It looks like T5 allows a habitable zone for even F8 Ia stars -- way out in orbit 12. But can the rest of the system details be reconciled with this star? I'm fine with implausible, I'm just curious where the impossible line lies.

Shouldn't a star like this be visible to the naked eye from Earth? It seems like it would be one of the most remarkable astrographic features in this part of Charted Space.
