Is there any popular star or one which we can see with our naked eyes in our milky way that is atleast 90% sun-like(mass,radius,spectra,luminosity).The important thing is it must not be a binary.
Its okay if its not visible to our naked eyes because our sun's absolute magnitude is +4.5!.

    $\begingroup$ @AstrofunAdd it to your question then, along with any other important conditions, since half of systems are binaries. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ This might be helpful, though they don't filter out the binaries. solstation.com/stars3/100-gs.htm#0-10 $\endgroup$

There's a whole Wikipedia page about it.


If you don't want Alpha Cen A, then 18 Sco might be the one.
