119 Tauri – a Red Supergiant Star

This very red star IS NOT a Carbon star! It is 119 Tauri (SAO94628) one of the brightest, reddest, stars in the sky. This image was captured using a Hyperstar version III on a Celestron Nexstar11 GPS SCT. Camera used was an SXV-M25C. 22 subs at 3-minutes per sub, and the frame was cropped to centralise 119 Tauri. 119 Tauri is a red supergiant of magnitude 4.32, so it is visible to the naked eye.
