Chiron's Ring or some such title
Relatively unknown author, wrote a novel and its sequel. End of the '80s, beginning of the '90s.
What I remember: dozens of planets have been transported in orbit around one star.
I believe there is even a Wiki page on the novels, just can't remember the author.

Who never did finish that series, grumble. There were 2 books, the above and the sequel 'The Shattered Sphere'. I was always of the opinion that the author did not know where to take the next book and just abandoned the whole project. I know he has written books after these.

I remember the books too; minor sf with pleasant characters - the first book was better actually setting up the stuff
