This image was taken from John's observatory in Yellow Springs, Ohio, using John's homemade 16” Newtonian telescope and a QHY8CCD single shot color camera. The Exposure was 1 hour (12-5 minute subs) captured from 01:00am until 02:00 am E.S.T. on 07-06-2010.
John writes, "Although Pluto was easily visible in a short 5 minute exposure, I took an hour exposure to show the Dark nebula and 'Rich & Pretty' surrounding star field."
