U Delphini

Poster: cildarith (see all of this user's photos)
Description: Slip 2° north and a little west (of Gamma Delphini) and you'll find the semiregular variable star U Delphini. This red giant star fluctuates in magnitude from magnitude 7.6 to 8.9 with a period of roughly 110 days. I estimated its magnitude at "around 8" but I've never been much of a variable star observer and was pretty much content to savor the ruddy glow of this star for a few minutes before moving on.
