The stars of the constellation is quite faint and there are no bright objects which can be seen in the image, except for Uranus. Go from the left of the lowermost corners of the boundary up to the next corner (the boundary turns left). Continue left a distance corresponding to one third of the distance to the constellation figure above. there is a bright dot just above the boundary line. This dot is Uranus.
