The stars of Draco the Dragon, wind through the picture. North is to
the left. Vega, in
Lyra, is at the lower right corner,
Hercules at center right,
Bootes at upper right, while the bowl of the
Little Dipper is at center left and Cepheus
at lower left. Draco's squarish head is just below center, its two
bright stars Rastaban (Beta) on top, Eltanin (Gamma) on the bottom.
Kuma (Nu) is to the left of Rastaban. Proceeding to the left and a bit
down is Altais (Delta) and Epsilon. Sigma is between the two.
Zeta is up and to the left of Kuma, Al Dhibain (Eta) up and to the right of
Zeta. We then go up and to the right to find
Theta. Kappa Dra lies in the upper left corner. Then look to the right
and somewhat down to find a pair of stars, the lower of which is
famed Thuban (Alpha). Edasich (Iota) is then
down and to the right of Thuban. Kappa is flanked by 4 (on top) and
6 (bottom) Draconis. Draco then continues up and to the left
to the Dragon's tail at its far western end
and Giauser (Lambda).
The North Ecliptic Pole (NEP) is about two-thirds of
the way from Delta to Zeta.
The South Ecliptic Pole is in Dorado.
