From my archives 2006... I saw Mike Phillips' pluto image and it reminded me of the 2-frame animation I took of Pluto about a month before it was no longer a planet. The images were taken with a Meade 8" LX90 and a Canon XT DSLR. One image was taken on July 11th and the other taken on the 13th in order to see the apparant movement. I found pluto in the wide field images and then cropped.
