The galaxy pair NGC 1316 and 1317 in the constellation of Fornax

This chart shows most of the stars that can be seen with the naked eye on a clear dark night. The small constellation of Fornax (The Furnace) contains a concentration of nearby galaxies, including the galaxies NGC 1316 and 1317 (indicated with a red circle). These are bright enough to be seen as faint circular hazy patches in a middle-sized amateur telescope.
