Map created in Guide 7.0 with the figure outline based on Johannes Hevelius' Uranographia (1690). Click on the object's name to access its image or click on the name of adjacent constellation to see its map.
Sagitta, the Arrow, was mentioned in many Greek myths. In one of them it represents the arrow sent by Hercules to kill the Eagle (Aquila).
Being the third smallest constellation, Sagitta does contain only a small selection of clusters and a few nebulae. Globular M71 is the nicest telescopic target there.
