Eta Eridani

η Eridani

In the same field of view of zeta and the rhos is eta, on the far western edge: binoculars.

Eta Eridani serves as the end of the first western branch of the river. From here the Eridanus makes a steep descent to the 'tee' stars.

In fact we'll need some help from neighbouring Cetus. If you put eta Eridani at the top of your field of view, and move several degrees southwest you'll see a bright star slide into view.

This is pi Ceti. Now put pi Ceti at the top of your glasses and you'll find tau1 at the bottom of your field of view.
