Very cool how did you make this? Im actually looking to get a shot of Ceres and Vesta this weekend. Would you happen to know where I would find RA/DEC info for em?

Thanks for the post!

I did this with StarryNight Pro. I exported it as a JPEG image. To make it, first I center Ceres. Then right click and chose Celestial Path, then advance the time one day at a time. It makes the graph as you go through the days.
