Nights of the Hunter

Map 11: Equatorial Region 2
Eridanus to Hydra
The heart of the winter sky fills this star map. Here, we encounter Orion the Hunter, the favorite constellation of many observers. Orion is just the start, however. Taurus, Gemini, Eridanus, Canis Minor, and Canis Major all contribute bright stars. And don't overlook Monoceros the Unicorn. Although it contains no bright stars, Monoceros is a treasure trove of deep-sky objects and double stars.
