Just a quick note to say Ceres, magnitude 7.04, was easily seen in Celestron Skymaster 15x70 at about 10:30pm JST on 5/24/19 from southern part of Osaka Prefecture  

Was between Chi Ophiuchi and Phi Ophiuchi and next to a trio of stars: HD148198, HD148351 (at magnitude 8.30) and HD148438. 

Thanks very much to tip in this month’s Binocular Sky newsletter.

Took some images of it last night but haven't got around to them yet.

Thanks for the post. Just had a look tonight in 10x50s - a good match to the position in sky safari.

      So last night at 8:10 PM I decided to point my telescope to Alpha Piscium to start star hopping to Ceres. I hopped through a few 7th magnitude stars until I came across 3 stars in a crooked line. The one on top of this line was Ceres. I decided to show my Father, since he always wanted to see an asteroid with his own eyes so why not show him the biggest? At magnitude +7.6 it isn't at it's brightest but its magnitude is slowly rising back up to 8th magnitude so it's now a good time to observe it!
       
      The first image is exactly what I seen through my telescope ( Celestron 114 LCM 4.5 inch reflector) using Stellarium's optical view and the other images are just highlighting where Ceres is.
      I enjoyed looking at Ceres and I can't wait to watch it's path across Cetus! Clear skies!

      Here is my attempt on July 18, 2015 to image Pluto as it moves through the northeastern part of Sagittarius. If you zoom in really, really, REALLY tight you may see the dim blip of light (depending on the compression of the photo in this post). LOOK DEEPLY INTO THE RED CIRCLE, haha.  I took this shot (a composite of 5-30s exposures) at f4.2 using a zoom lens at 300mm on my Nikon. Sorry the image of Pluto isn't bigger but it's a scant 3 BILLION MILES AWAY, lol. Go, New Horizons, go! 

      Cheers and clear skies!
