Map created in Guide 7.0 with the figure outline based on Johannes Hevelius' Uranographia (1690). Click on the object's name to access its image or click on the name of adjacent constellation to see its map.
Queen Cassiopeia was the wife of King Cepheus and the mother of Andromeda. She gave name to the one of the most distinct constellations - which probably fits well her boastfull character.
Stradling the Milky Way, Cassiopeia is crowded by star clusters and nebulae. M52 and NGC7635 are my most favourite of them , respectively.
