The constellation of Cassiopeia hangs up near the zenith before midnight of autumn. The Milky Way around Cassiopeia looks dimmer than that in summer skies, but it's a treasure house of uncountable nebulae and star clusters. People living in northern moderate latitude can enjoy those celestial objects in fairly good condition because of higher meridian transit.
