44. Cassiopeia

Cassiopeia is on the opposite side of the Pole Star from The Plough. It consists notably of a group of five very bright stars forming a W. Two of these, Ruchbah and Caph, are navigation stars. This constellation contains about 60 stars visible without the aid of a telescope. It is named after Cassiopeia, wife of Cepheus, King of Ethiopia, and mother of Andromeda who was saved from a sea monster by Perseus (Greek Mythology).
