<< My star atlas labels stars with greek symbols or numbers so how
can I turn the description "EQ Pegasi" into a real star?

The designation is one given to variable stars. They start with "R" for a
given constellation; run to double letters; and then numbers. Examples: R Aqr;
EQ Peg; V289 Cyg. They are listed according to their order of discovery.
