The location of the reflection nebula IC 2631 in the constellation of Chameleon

This chart of the faint southern constellation of Chameleon (The Chameleon) shows most stars visible on a clear and dark night. The location of the reflection nebula IC 2631 around the young star HD 97300 is marked. Although the star can be seen in a small telescope, the surrounding nebula is too faint to be easily perceived, and shows itself best in photographs.
