At the beginning, Taurus and Orion are conspicuous constellations in the southern sky. The autumn constellation Pegasus is also just visible in the west before it sets together with the nearby Andromeda galaxy. In the east, the constellation of Leo is just rising, where we can take aim at individual galaxies that are there. To the northeast we find the Big Dipper. Through it we can easily seek out Polaris. Of the planets, we may see Uranus shimmering as a faint dot in the sky. As a special object we will have a closer look at the Orion Nebula. It is very bright and therefore easy to recognise even by the inexperienced observer in the telescope. It is an emission nebula that glows itself. As new, very hot stars are currently forming inside it, they stimulate it to glow with their intense radiation.
