Suprised what stars are visible at 6am

Was surprised to see Orion which looked very interesting - but 6am is not enough time to get the telescope set up unfortunately.

Also saw Sirius which is the brightest star in the night sky apparently.

I assumed these where Northern stars - so its good to get up early sometimes!

Turn left at orion looked useful until I realised southern hemi is only very lightly covered, they should not do that (focus on northern hemi - very bad!!)
