The star formation region NGC 3324 in the constellation of Carina (The Keel)

This chart shows the location of the star formation region NGC 3324 within the constellation of Carina (The Keel of Jason’s ship, Argo). This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions, and the location of the nebula itself is marked with a red circle. Through a moderate-sized amateur telescope this object appears as a small clump of faint stars.
