Canes Venatici is a dim constellation below the 'handle' of the bright Ursa Major constellation.
This small constellation is named after the hunting dogs: Asterion and Chara. For such a small constellation it contains a surprising number of clusters and galaxies.
Technically you don't need any equipment at all to see Canes Venatici! However, to see the fainter stars in the constellation, especially from a light-polluted location would require a good pair of binoculars.
