The location of the Hercules galaxy cluster

This chart shows the location of the Hercules galaxy cluster within the constellation of Hercules. This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions, and the location of this galaxy cluster is marked with a red circle. Only a few of the galaxies in this cluster can be seen in a large amateur telescope as very faint glows.
