    Next the names of the constellations in their nominative and genitivo use appear. The nominative case is used to name the constellation properly this. And the genitive when we want to make specific with a certain star of a constellation.

    For example, Betelgeuse, the star with a certain reddish tonality in the constellation of Orion, would be denominated therefore, a Orionis.

    On my web you can find the new celestial chart to find without problems the all constellations in the sky, exactily 88, with a simple eye or finderscope ones. All ones are ordered by right ascension or R.A. & declination or Dec.
