Cassiopeia's faint but unmistakeable "W" which swivels about the North Pole can be visited nearly any month of the year although in early Spring it is closest the horizon around midnight, which may hinder its study.

Cassiopeia's upper culmination (when it is highest in the skies) occurs in early October.

Cassiopeia has a number of interesting objects—double stars and open clusters—all in the region of the 'W'.
