Cassiopeia is a constellation and not a single star so to give a temperature would be inaccurate.

Cassiopeia is a star that is named after the Greek mythological queen Cassiopeia. It can easily be spotted in the night sky because it is shaped like a W. It is made up of five main stars. Their names are Alpha Cassiopeia, Beta Cassiopeia, Gamma Cassiopeia, Delta Cassiopeia, and Epsilon Cassiopeia.

Alpha Cassiopeiae (or Schedar)

Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern sky. It was named after the vain queen Cassiopeia in Greek mythology, who boasted about her unrivaled beauty. As punishment for her vanity she was forced to endlessly circle the North Star.

The magnitude of the Schedar star in Cassiopeia is -1.985. Remember Negative stars are brighter.

There are more than five stars in Cassiopeia but the major ones are as follows from the left of the 'W' / 'M': Caph, Beta Cassiopeia Shedar, Alpha Cassiopeia Cih, Gamma Cassiopeia Ruchbah, Delta Cassiopeia Sagin, Epsilon Cassiopeia

Neptune was never discovered as a star.

2 constellations with 5 stars are Cassiopeia & Cepheus.

The north star is part of the constellation Ursa Minor, and is near such constellations as Ursa Major, Cassiopeia, and Draco.

Tycho's Star is a supernova that was "discovered" by Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe in November of 1572 in the constellation of Cassiopeia. It was visible to the naked eye for 18 months, at its peak brilliance was brighter than the planet Venus and thus visible to the naked eye in broad daylight. This was the first "new star" noticed in the West in modern times. It confirmed Tycho in his suspicion that the heavens were not fixed and eternally unchanging. There seems to be some confusion as to whether the remnant of this supernova explosion -- visible today in a powerful telescope as a sphere of gas glowing at 50 million degrees Fahrenheit -- is indeed identical with Cassopeia A, the most powerful radio object in the sky after objects in our own solar system. Some sources on the net say Cassiopeia A is indeed the remnant of Tycho's Star, others that Cassiopeia A is the remnant of a supernova that exploded in or a little before 1680 and was briefly observed by Astronomer Royal John Flamsteed as a 6th magnitude star which he did not recognize as a "new star." I wish someone would clear up this discrepancy.

yes there is many stars and they can be discovered

Although not noted as a supernova, the nebula "Cassiopeia A" was first observed by John Flamsteed on August 16, 1680. It is likely that intervening dust clouds obscured the brightness of the supernova, which might otherwise have been observed in 1667.Current estimates place the distance from Earth as around 11,000 light years. If that is correct, then the supernova explosion actually took place around 9,000 BCE. (see related link)
