I need information on the constelation Cepheus
Computer names notable now?
I have to ask, how is it notable that a computer at some institution was named after this constellation? That seems like pointless trivia, as well as being almost completely unverifiable. If nobody objects I'm going to remove that section. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:22, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Cepheus is a constellation in the northern sky. Named after Cepheus, King of Aethiopia, in Greek mythology, it was listed by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy and remains one of the 88 modern constellations. Its brightest star is Alpha Cephei. The constellation also has the hyperluminous quasar S5 0014+81, which hosts the most massive black hole known in the universe.
