Puppis is very extensive Winter constellation. However, one must live rather far to the south in order to explore all its objects.

Nevertheless some of its best objects are about the same declination as Sirius (alpha Canis Majoris) which makes them accessible for most of us.

Prerequisites: Canis Major.

To examine the stars of Puppis, first move down into the southeast corner of Canis Major, locating delta.
 Place delta CMa on the western edge of your glasses and move east one field: k Puppis is nearly centred.

(The labelling of this constellation is distinctly odd, with many English labels, capital and lower-case.)
