Star chart showing Cebelrai.

Beta Ophiuchi (also known as Cebelrai) is a binary star (spectral class K2III primary) located about 25 parsecs (82 light-years) from Earth, where it is visible in the constellation of Ophiuchus. The Beta Ophiuchi star system is the home of the Beta Ophiuchi VI as well as the Colony world of Errigal. (TNG novel: Intellivore)

"Intellivore" mentioned Beta Ophiuchi's system, but since it is a "real" star system, modern scientists know a few things about its makeup that weren't in Star Trek.
