Latin: Lynx (Lyn)
English: Lynx Spanish: Lince
German: Luchs French: Lynx
The field of the faint constellation Lynx is shown in the above photography (see lines). It is not easy to find it at the sky between the constellations Ursa Major (left) and Auriga (right).

In mid of March Lynx culminates at about 21:00 local time (9 pm). The declination range is +33 to +62 degrees. The brightest star is just of 3.3 mag visual brightness and can be seen at the very lower left. This field is very poor in Deep Sky Objects. The existing galaxies and one globular cluster are too faint and too small to be seen clearly in the wide field photography.
