Each star is a Bayer designation which proceeds through the Greek alphabet for the first 24 brightest stars, then through the lower-case Latin alphabet for the next 26 brightest stars then through the upper-case Latin alphabet for the next 26 brightest stars (up to the 76th brightest star designated Z). In modern day, the Bayer designation system is only used informally for referring to the brightest stars in a constellation (usually only the Greek letters) and the Flamsteed designation is usually used for informal references to stars that are up to the 100 brightest in the constellation.
