HD 6114 is a binary star in the constellation Andromeda. With a combined apparent magnitude of 6.51, the star can only be seen with the naked eye by keen-eyed observers even on the best of nights. The system is located approximately 96.06 parsecs (313.3 ly) distant, and the primary is a blue-white subgiant, meaning that it has used up its core hydrogen and is beginning to expand.[2]
