δ Pegasi

Delta Pegasi is rarely called ‘delta’ since it also goes by the name of alpha Andromedae (Sirrah or Alpheratz).

The star forms the northeastern corner of The Great Square of Pegasus: binoculars.

In the same region is the notable binary 85 Pegasi, (BU 733), a multiple system:
      AB (yellow-orange and orange-reddish): 5.8, 8.9; 273º, 0.8" with an orbit of 26.27 years.
      AC (orange): 5.8, 9.9; 326º, 173.8".
