Tony Schellinck was teaching us how to star hop using our binoculars at Nova East Star Party.

I found M6 then went 45º to the right. The open cluster appeared with a few bright stars within it. Could also locate this visually by going east from Kaus Australis in the Teapot. What was especially noticeable was the line of 4 stars.
