The location of a star is given by its sidereal hour angle (S.H.A.) and its declination (Dec.). The locations given below are rounded off to the degree of angle and are an aid in finding the star, but for sight reduction, more precise values will be needed from the Nautical Almanac.
* = Stars that are prominent for observers in the Northern hemisphere.
# = Stars that are prominent for observers in the Southern hemisphere.
Var. = Variable star, mag. = 0.1 to 1.2
- Note that many stars are visible North and South of the equator.
