This chart shows the location of the unusual double star V471 Tauri (red circle). All the stars visible with the naked eye on a dark night are indicated. The object itself can be easily seen in a small telescope, but just appears as an unremarkable faint star. V471 Tauri is an outlying member of the bright Hyades star cluster.
