Pluto - the next day

Pluto - the next day

Here is the following night. The wind was less and the sky was clearer and so a much better picture was obtained. For the technical minded: this is a 30 sec shot at ISO 6400 on my Pentax K7 SLR connected at prime focus to my Meade LX90 200mm diameter 2000mm focal length (i.e. f/10). The exact time was 2010-6-15 12:30 UT (22:30 EST) giving a Right Ascension of 18:17:41.1 and Declination -18:14:00.1
