α Trianguli Australis

Alpha Trianguli Australis, the brightest star in this compact constellation southeast of alpha Centauri, forms the eastern corner of the large equilateral Southern Triangle.

Alpha is easily found with the naked eye. From alpha Centauri look just to the southeast from the twin stars alpha and beta Centauri.

The asterism is too large for one binocular field; the naked eye easily traces alpha—north to beta—southwest to gamma.
