Re: Proposed cool stars temperatures update

Oh yes, that's right. But what about metallicity ("metals" = everything that is not hydrogen or helium)?

Re: Proposed cool stars temperatures update

I think a reasonable rule-of-thumb for star temperatures is that M-type stars usually have temperatures between 3,000 to 4,000 Kelvin or Celsius, type K are between 4,000 to 5,000, and G-type 5,000 to 6,000 (remember there is a relatively small difference between Celsius (subtract 273 from) and Kelv...
