TV Lacertae is magnitude 9.33 and is too faint to be seen by the naked eye. A telescope is required to view this star. The star is 1355.9322 parsecs from us which means it is roughly 4422.45 light years away.
Directly to the left of TV Lacertae is another even smaller red star. Like TV Lac, the small neighbor has the characteristic deep red hue of a carbon star. This star is listed as USNO J2256110+541335 (aka 2MASS J22561103+5413351) but there was no information on this star to confirm whether it is or is not a carbon star.
