    The location was more or less symmetrical on the other side of the Southern Cross from alpha and beta Centauri (see the attached image which I made for my own interest --Eta Car is the very bright unlabeled star).


    When star-hopping I have always thought of Eta Carinæ as being roughly midway between the Southern Cross and prominent False Cross asterism which is at bottom right of your image. That region between the two crosses is a particularly rich area to explore with a small telescope,
