The star cluster NGC 3766 in the constellation of Centaurus

This chart shows the large southern constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). The map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions, and the bright star cluster NGC 3766 is highlighted with a red circle on the image. It is a bright object that can even be glimpsed with the naked eye from a dark site and is spectacular through a moderately sized amateur telescope.
