Darren, I have version 12.5 of Stellarium and putting two asterisks in front of the designation will locate the STF double. In other words **STF 45. I presume this also works for the newer versions.

Clear skies,
Finbarr.

Hello again, Darren. 

Moving your Dobsonian from Schedar to Zeta Cas to Xi Cas to Omicron Cas to Pi Cas is the correct route to get to STF 45. 

Star hopping is fun!

Clear skies, 

Aubrey.

Hello Finbarr and Aubrey,

Finbarr, very many thanks for that useful piece of information about two asterisks in front of the designation...I must try that next time.

Thanks again, and clear skies to you.

Aubrey, very many thanks to you too. It is great to have you confirm that the route I'll use going forward to locate STF 45 is a good one - fair play!

All the best gents,

Darren.

Thank you, Darren. 

I am also delighted you discovered the correct colours of STF 45. 
Wheat yellow and dark orange are 100% correct!

Clear skies from Aubrey.
