So, I was looking in my handy dandy starcharts, trying to find Gliese 581. I had the RA/DE coordinates, but I couldn’t find the star in Burnham’s Celestial Handbook. I found stars that were close to the coordinates, but certainly not exact. Stellarium is just frickin’ awesome. It’s a planetarium/star chart program written by *GASP* the French! Who knew they’d be able to chug out something cool and useful like this? 🙂

Anyway, I found Gliese 581. It was actually designated HP 74995, which I was able to cross-reference via Wiki. It’s in Libra, just beside the star that represents the top side of the scale.
