The star cluster and nebula NGC 371 in the constellation of Tucana

This chart shows the location of the star cluster and nebula NGC 371 in the constellation of Tucana (The Toucan). This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions and the cluster itself is marked with a circle. Through a moderate-sized amateur telescope this cluster appears quite large, but dim, and the gas cloud is difficult to see.
