- You say it's Latin for compass. Is it worth adding an illustration of a compass at some point in the article, since you do not have large numbers of images? Ideally, a classic constellation image (forgive me, I don't know the technical term) showing it as a compass would be a nice thing to have, too. Lacaille's perhaps? Don't feel you have to do this to get GA, just a suggestion or two.
- "and planetary nebula, NGC 5315, and a spiral galaxy." The multiple commas read oddly here.
- Is it known how it acquired its Latin name in 1763? Did Lacaille name it? I would also suggest that this information works perhaps better at the end of the paragraph.
- "is hence visible only south of the 30° north latitude." I venture hesitantly into this technical bit of writing, but could the "the" be deleted?
- Notable features
- "the two orbit each other every 2000 years. They orbit each other every 180 years." ahem
- "The system is over 3600 light years distant, and would outshine Venus at magnitude -4.8 if it were 32 light years (10 parsecs) distant" suggest modification to avoid double "juggling"
- "could intersect with the Earth's orbit that and generate a meteor outburst" I think tweaking is needed here.
- Just the "orbit each other" with the widely varying figures.--Wehwalt (talk) 00:33, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
