Profiles of the strong lines Ca II 8542 Å and Mg I 8806 Å together with regions containing Ca I, Fe I and Fe II lines in the spectra of the G8 giant stars µ Peg and [FORMULA] Peg have been recorded at high resolution and with signal/noise [FORMULA]. The wings of the strong lines and the full profiles of intermediate strength lines are consistent with an LTE analysis based on the following sets of atmospheric parameters:


These results, together with Hipparcos parallaxes and recently published photometry, lead to estimates of luminosity, mass and radius. Inferred angular diameters are consistent with a well established empirical relationship but disagree with direct measurements by an interferometric technique.

Key words: stars: fundamental parameters – stars: individual: Peg – stars: individual: Peg
