54 Hydrae
To find 54 Hydrae, begin at pi Hydrae then move about two and a half binocular fields due east: binoculars.

This clump of Flamsteed stars, 54 through 60 Hydrae, marks the real end of the Hydra's tail, as its tip makes a curl around its northern neighbour sigma Librae.

54 Hydrae is a fine binary (Sh 184) of contrasting colours, yellow and purple: 5.1, 7.2; 121, 8.3".
