How to spot Horologium
After the invention of the telescope, the French astronomer Nicolas de Lacaille named some constellations of the southern hemisphere that had not been recognized before. Unlike the 48 constellations of antiquity, which bear the names of mythological figures, he often used the name of technological novelties for the new constellations. He first named the constellation "Horologium Oscillitorium", but later the name was shortened to Horologium.
