Abstract: The emission-line object HDE 327083 has long been considered to be one of the most luminous stars in the Milky Way. Nevertheless, no reliable physical parameters have been published for it. Our high-resolution optical spectroscopy revealed the presence of photospheric lines of a cool luminous companion. We detected significant antiphased radial velocity variations of the emission and absorption lines. The data obtained are still insufficient to derive a reliable orbital solution; however, the orbital period is most likely of the order of 6 months.
