To the south of Orion is the constellation of Lepus, and south of that is Columba. Although the region pales in comparison to Orion, these two constellations contain 2 good globular clusters (M 79 and NGC 1851), many interesting double stars, and a number of faint galaxies. Also the variable star, R leporis, is well known for its deep red colour. The fine double star h3752 lies in the same low magnification field as M79.
