    This is the first serious consideration of stars more massive than around 500 solar masses (that I have heard of). Thanks.

    For pure hydrogen the Eddington limit is ~3*10^4 solar masses.

    But that assumes Newton for gravity. We're not really looking for these objects to be stable anyway.
