|Description||Constellation of middling dimensions, situated to the north of Carina, between Centaurus and Puppis.
It doesn't contain any particular objects, apart two open clusters: IC 2391, visible to the naked eye too, and NGC 2547, composed by about fifty stars some of which reach the seventh magnitude (it is easily observable with simple binoculars).
|The constellation represents the sails of the Argonauts' ship (see the mythology of Carina).|
