Pluto 7/22/12

Posted By Dave Erickson

Nicely done Steve. Here is a wide field image of the area showing what you were up against. There are an overwhelming number of stars. Pluto is to the left of the open cluster M25. Finding and confirming Pluto amongst all those stars is quite an accomplishment!
Best regards,Dave
