... and here is a second observation two days later, on 2015 September 2nd. The two .png files are details of the original larger images from the Bradford telescope. I searched the originals for over an hour and was unable to locate "the dot that moved night to night" and had to resort to a finder field on the Sky and Telescope website.

It gives me a greater appreciation for Clyde Tombaugh's herculean efforts back in 1930!
