I took this image 4 Days before the 'New Horizons' space probe flyby of Pluto after a 9 1/2 year journey to get there! Pluto is mag 14.1 so quite faint, and slightly trailed over the 40 minute stack sequence. This image shows a cropped field. and is annotated to show Pluto based on information from WikiSky website, Starry Night Pro and close examination of start and end images in the 40 minute sequence.
