Straight-line Asterism in Sextans
Straight-line Asterism -- A Case of Fortuitous Chance
The Straight-line Asterism is just that – a chance alignment of stars. This straight line of
stars is most striking in binoculars which provides the best views of it. In my 6-inch
telescope I get a bit too much power, even using my low power eyepiece – but it is still
worth the visit.
