The Hubble Deep Field South in the constellation of Tucana

This chart shows the location of the Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S) in the southern constellation of Tucana (The Toucan). All the stars that are shown here are visible to the naked eye on a dark clear night. The most famous object here is the Small Magellanic Cloud but the galaxies in the HDF-S are hundreds of thousands of times more distant and billions of times fainter.
