Great work, Matteo. I remember the thrill the first time I captured Pluto - just a small faint dot, but *what* a dot!

How can you be sure that its Pluto

I think the lower image is a screenprint from one of the planetarium programs showing the relative positions?

I should think that is Charon beside Pluto.  Any of the other four moons would not be possible to image from the ground as they are too small.

Pluto is the small dot near the star.
