Corona Australis is The Southern Crown, a noticeable arc in the southern skies three binocular fields east of the Scorpion's stinger.

Alpha Coronae Australis and beta CrA are in the same field. Indeed, the entire asterism of the ‘crown’ fits into one binocular field of view. The constellation is directly west of alpha Sagittarii. By placing this latter star at the eastern edge of your glasses, the entire asterism fits in the right half of your FOV.

Kappa Coronae Australis is a splendid double suitable for larger binoculars. The stars are closely matched (5.7 and 6.3 magnitudes) with a position angle nearly due north (359º) and a separation of 21". The star is west of alpha one binocular field.
