What Lays Inside The Stars?

A pair of Unfiction posters has found something interesting.

Amongst the stars of the constellation of Cassiopeia? Alpha and Omega.

That's not really all that surprising. Most constellations name stars with greek letters and the constellation name. Starting with the brightest/most visible star, and working down.

I remember reading somewhere that Cass has 53 stars beyond the 5 bright ones, 58 in total.

There's definatly a connection though.

Schedar and Caph are both names of stars in Cassiopea
