Hi all, here are some images of Pluto taken this week-end at prime focus of
my 7" newtonian (F/6).
Technically the planet is easy to image with a just a few seconds and the
ATK-1HS. More difficult is to find where is the planet in the field of
stars, with no obvious orientation ! A very careful comparison with maps and
some very recent images I have seen really helped.
An animation is useful, maybe revealing also one or two variable stars...
Best wishes
