μ Herculis – first paper from the SONG project

The first paper from the SONG project, has been published in ApJ. SAC's Frank Grundahl is lead author. This solar type star has been observed for 215 nights; a new record, resulting in vastly improved parameters. The new results may lead to a revision of standard stellar models.
