Our galaxy's heart

Map 20: South Equatorial 5
Libra to Microscopium
This star map will keep your telescope's drive humming through many observing sessions. When we look toward this sky region, we face our Milky Way's center, where star clusters and nebulae abound. In Sagittarius alone, we find 15 Messier objects — the largest number in any of the 88 constellations. Scorpius adds four more. We'll start our tour, however, in the small constellation of Norma the Carpenter's Square.
