An ocean of galaxies

Map 10: Equatorial Region 1
Pisces to Eridanus
Two large but faint constellations dominate this equatorial star chart — Cetus the Whale and Pisces the Fish. Lots of galaxies populate this region, which lies far from the Milky Way. Charles Messier pinpointed only one object in each of these giant constellations, but a patient observer equipped with an 8-inch or larger telescope under a dark sky will see much more than two bright galaxies.
