NGC 7789 is easy to find 3[degrees] southeast of Beta Cassiopeiae, the easternmost star of Cassiopeia's W pattern.
Although this strand is invisible, two conspicuous stars, Caph (Beta Cassiopeiae) and Alpheratz (Alpha Andromedae), are close enough to it to reveal the path the colure threads through the constellations.
These form the western end of the pattern: Caph (Beta Cassiopeiae), Shedir (Alpha), and Tsih (Gamma).
