Fun constellation art

Fun constellation art that offers a rich set of targets can be found at Stargazing for Fun.

~z~ goes into great detail to tell us about the various objects and their properties with in the constellation boundaries. Many of the DSO's listed in the illustrations are within the urban astronomers grasp. Print out the charts, grab a pair of 7x or 10x binoculars, and see if you can spot faint fuzzies or resolving clusters.

With the spring sky rising by midnight, I look forward to more of these constellation charts.
