Fomalhaut and Beta ((3) Ceti (also known as Diphda or Deneb Kaitos) are the only stars of 2nd-magnitude or brighter in this region on our map--if we consider the non-aquatic Epsilon (e) Pegasi (Enif) and stars of the Great Square of Pegasus as merely bordering the region.
Moderately bright Diphda, or Beta ([beta]) Ceti, in the bottom of Cetus, the Whale, is just above this dim area and well to Fomalhaut's upper left.
If you imagine a line in Pegasus from Alpheratz to Algenib, and then extend that line southward, you get to the magnitude 2.0 Diphda, Beta Ceti, the brightest star in the constellation Cetus, the whale.

Its tail, tipped with 2.0-magnitude Beta ([beta]) Ceti, also called Deneb Kaitos or Diphda, is still low in the southeast.

The fat tail of Cetus is marked by 2nd-magnitude Beta ([beta]) Ceti, also called Diphda or Deneb Kaitos.
Following the Square's east side south takes us toward Beta ([beta]) Ceti, or Diphda, the 2nd-magnitude star at the tail of Cetus.
This star is Beta ([beta]) Ceti, also called Diphda or Deneb Kaitos, supposedly marking the tail of Cetus, the Whale.
Cetus is marked on its tail and head by the 2nd-magnitude stars Beta ([beta]) Ceti, also called Diphda or Deneb Kaitos, and Alpha ([alpha]) Ceti, or Menkar, respectively.
A line extended down from the Square's eastern side leads near to another low and lonely fall star, Beta ([beta]) Ceti, named Deneb Kaitos or Diphda. It's in the hind end of big and mostly dim Cetus, the Whale.
