Crater, The Goblet, is an ancient constellation associated with Corvus, The Crow, to the east.

While many of Crater's binaries and deep sky objects are too faint for binoculars or small telescopes, there are several fine binaries still available to investigate.

Crater lies just south of Leo. However unless you have extremely dark skies suitable for naked-eye exploration, you may find it easier to locate Crater's stars via Hydra.

Prerequisite: Hydra.
