Apparently the star Vega (Part of the Summer Triangle) is parked in the constellation Lyra, which, awesomely, is named after Orpheus' lyre.

Also, the Sombrero Galaxy I'm so fond of (M104) is parked rather near to Spica (which is at the end of the imaginary curved line through the Big Dipper and past Arcturus as the midpoint...)

Things to Look Up: Exact location of Teapot Asterism in Sagittarius (And where in relation to good pointing stars I could find it. It doesn't seem very visible from main charts.)
