Has Anyone tried to find Ceres and Vesta ?

I understand they're in Virgo, which is near the Equator right now. Is there a guide star I can jump from to locate them? How about if I come over from Spica?

Unfortunately, ongoing fog prevented seeing them separated by about 10' on the 5th. For that evening I would have used my 15x70 since they are now fainter than when I started tracking them. (Ceres was a wee-bit difficult on June 28th with my Fujinon. Would probably have been easier with the Fujinon mounted.)
