γ Scuti

Gamma Scuti is far to the south of the constellation, and a convenient star for hopping over to quite a number of Messier objects in nearby Sagittarius and Serpens.

This white sub-giant is one binocular field south of alpha: binoculars.

The binary Struve 2325 appears at the opposite side of your field of view, near the northern edge: 5.8, 9.3; 257, 12.4".

With gamma Scuti at the eastern side of your glasses, M16, M17, and M18 are all visible (from north to south). Also due south of gamma Scuti one binocular field is M25 in Sagittarius. Visit these various constellations for details on the Messier objects.
