The globular cluster NGC 3201 in the constellation of Vela (The Sails)

This chart shows the rich southern constellation of Vela (The Sails, part of the ship Argo) and marks most of the stars visible to the unaided eye on a clear dark night. The globular star cluster NGC 3201 is marked with a red circle. This cluster can be seen dimly in binoculars and is resolved into many faint stars with a moderate-sized amateur telescope.
