For the past few nights Uranus has been quite close to a similiarly bright star in Pisces. The field of view of a 6" Dobsonian using a 25mm eyepiece highlights the two well; it shows the pair together while still giving a little bit of "play" on either side to track manually if necessary. Each night the two are farther apart; by 5 October they will be a half-degree separated.
44 Piscium is a class G star 600 light-years away. These are the times that 44 Piscium is highest in the Baton Rouge sky...
