Delta Capricorni, Latinized from δ Capricorni, also named Deneb Algedi, is a binary star system approximately 39 light-years away in the constellation of Capricornus (the Sea Goat). The primary star in the system is a white giant star and the combined light of its members makes it the brightest star within the constellation.

Because it is near the ecliptic, Delta Capricorni can be occulted by the Moon, and also (rarely) by planets.
