The winter constellation Caelum is always very low above the horizon when viewed from mid-northern latitudes. Not that this really matters, for it has hardly any objects of interest for amateur astronomers and absolutely none for observers with binoculars. The constellation can be found west of Columba. The brightest stars are Alpha (4m4), orange Gamma (4m5), and Beta (5m0).
