Well, it's not as nice as the shots from New Horizons, but it's my first image of Pluto! This was a single 20 second exposure using the CCD attached to the 20" Ritchey-Chretien scope at the HRPO. It looks so tiny!

Good Job, Ben! I understand Treasurer Trey Anding also got Pluto that same night...and we'll never see that dot the same after this summer. Congratulations.
