Navi, Gamma Cassiopeiae, 27 Cassiopeiae

Cih is the central star of Cassiopeia's famous 'W' shape. Despite its 'gamma' designation, it outshines both Schedar and Caph, the Alpha and Beta stars of its home constellation. It is a luminous blue star, and highly volatile: its habit of casting rings of matter out into space makes it rather variable in magnitude.
