A colorful chain of unrelated stars referred to as Kemble's Cascade is present in Camelopardalis. Not a true cluster, the asterism contains about 20 stars in a row stretching over five times the width of the full moon. Described by binocular enthusiast Lucian Kemble (1922-1999), these stars appear as a string only from our direction in the Milky Way.

Open Cluster NGC 1502 lies at the southeast end of Kemble 1.
