(Received 17 November 2000 / Accepted 12 June 2001 )

Photometric U and I standard sequences in the field of the open cluster NGC 7790 are presented. The intention is to achieve wide ranges in magnitude and colour, making these sequences suitable for calibrating deep CCD photometry. The 84 standard stars extend the BVR sequences of Odewahn et al. (1992) to the near UV and IR, respectively.

Key words: techniques: photometric -- astronomical data bases: miscellaneous -- open clusters: individual: NGC 7790
