Disc accretion onto the low-mass brown dwarf OTS 44

Derived properties of OTS 44 are cooler and more luminous than previous estimates, and the disc is extensive. The mass accretion rate onto OTS 44 is consistent with the general relationship observed for stars and brown dwarfs, despite the low mass of the system.
