The region of space described by Pavo is largely 'beneath' the galactic disc, but it
does contain a number of extragalactic globular clusters.
Lying on the fringes of the Milky Way, Pavo is lacking in bright objects apart from its
primary star, itself called Peacock. It contains various clusters, of which
NGC 6752 is the only one visible to the naked eye.
