Perseus is found in the Milky Way, which means that the skies here are replete with glittering background stars, wonderfully seen in binoculars.

The hero Perseus is represented as holding the severed head of Medusa, the Gorgon.

The constellation contains one of the most celebrated of variable stars (Algol) as well as several very fine deep sky objects -- the famous Double Cluster and M34.
