Pluto last night new

I usually target Pluto annually and last night was that successful occasion for me [below] very low in Sagittarius on the southern meridian between trees. Confirmed against Wikisky and subsequent internet image taken 48hrs earlier. Done and dusted - no hope of visually with my eyes and the low altitude

Congrats! I've been trying visual but so far this year no joy. Got it last year. It's a dim one for sure.

That's a really nice photo! I have never seen pluto, and never tried. I hope to try it when my new scope comes...

Very nice image of Pluto. Do you about what magnitude Pluto was when you took your picture?

Well, an 18" anything should be more than enough
