This picture shows you the flow of autumnal Milky Way from the Cygnus in lower right and continuing to the Cassiopeia and Perseus in left side.
The Milky Way in autumn is the dimmed stellar river connecting the Milky Way of summer and winter, it hangs up around the zenith seeing at the northern hemisphere. The Milky Way isn't flowing down toward the southern skies, the southern constellations in autumn look like fairly sparse being apart from the Galactic plane. But the field around the Cassiopeia in center of this picture contains many nebulae and star clusters, we can never get weary of exploring in autumnal Milky Way.
