The great long period variable Mira is the fairly prominent star
just to the left of center. The bright star to the left of
Mira (about half way across the
picture) is Menkar, the bottom star of an irregular circle that marks
the head of Cetus, the Whale; Kaffaljidhma is just up and to the
right of Menkar and Delta Ceti is between it and
Mira. Xi-2, also a part of the head, is directly above
Delta, while Xi-1 is up and to the right of Xi-2, Mu to the left of
Xi-2. Mu is actually to most northly star (the picture somwhat tilted).
To the right of Mira near the edge
of the picture is Deneb Kaitos, which marks the whale's tail.
The left-hand star of the close pair to the right of center is
Baten Kaitos; the right-hand star is Chi Ceti, which is blended
with HR 11131 to the right. Tau Ceti is down and to the right of them (with Upsilon
directly below Tau, Eta up and to the right of it). Kappa-1
Ceti is the right hand star of the pair just down and to the left
of Menkar. Note Mira's reddish color. The pair of stars just up and to the
left of Menkar belong to Taurus, Xi Tau
on the left, Omicron on the right.
