Peacock, Alpha Pavonis, shines brightly at top center, with Beta Pav well down and a bit to the left. Lambda is near the lower right corner. Gamma is then to the left and a little up from Beta, whereas Delta is to the right and a bit down from it. Kappa Pav is just off the lower edge of the picture at bottom right. Mu-1 and Mu-2 are the close pair down and a bit to the right of Delta.

The southern portion of the constellation lies off the picture to lower right. Southern Indus appears at upper left, Beta Indi to the left and a bit down from Peacock, Epsilon Indi the lower of the pair of modestly bright stars in the upper left corner. South is down and to the right. The fuzzy bright "star" up from and a bit left of Lambda Pav is NGC 6752, 15,000 light years away and still one of the brightest globular clusters in he sky.
