My attempt at Pete Lawrence and Paul Abel's challenge that they set at Winchester Weekend.  I left it a little late, they were 4 deg 47 minutes apart but I could still just about get them into the field of view using a full frame DSLR.  I'm reasonably sure that Pluto is visible in centre of circle bottom right.  You'll have to zoom in bottom right.  I'll post a zoomed in version later.

Great Picture. close examination certainly  agrees with the BAA  Close up Chart for the  date.    It shows what can be  done with a DSLR  and skill.  Congratulations  Steve.
