Mu Cephei name was known as “Garnet Star” because of it’s deep red color.
This star is a famous variable star the brightness is four times greater than it’s maximum.
1,550 light years away estimates place it at about 573 parsecs which equates to about 1,900 light years from us.
2536 times the solar radius. Would fill the orbit of Saturn. http://www.windows2universe.org/the_u niverse/MuCephi.html
38,000 times brighter than the sun.
Mu Cephei is the famous "Garnet Star", so named by Sir William Herschel for its vivid red, even noticeable in binoculars (if somewhat http://www.dibonsmith.com/cep_m.htm more so in telescopes).
