Nice Work Callum, an interesting image indeed, thanks for posting (thanks also for the latest Pluto image update on your blog too). Imaging Pluto is on my-to-do list sometime and with the “New Horizons” space probe on its way there presently I am sure Pluto will be more in the public domain, I wonder what new discoveries awaits!

Thanks Mike - i guess for

Thanks Mike - i guess for many of us of a certain age Pluto will always hold a fascination.

For those not keeping up to date with my blog here is an image of Pluto on 30 July and 1st August.

I'm not sure the orientation is right - as Martin Mobberley points out iTelescope T18 has a "weird PA". I think North is at about 1 o'clock...
