Vela, the sails of the ship Argo Navis, has a number of objects suitable for binoculars.

The constellation is so far to the south that only North American residents living in the extreme southern parts of the United States (or in Central America) have a good view of the entire constellation.

Southern Hemisphere residents will find it high in the late summer sky (i.e. February) as they look south.
