Pluto is transiting in front of the dark nebula Barnard 92. The first photo was taken on July 4th was taken using a Celestron 80mm Onyx refractor and a Canon XSi Rebel DSLR (5x90sec, ISO 800) at the suggestion of my 4yr old daughter. I followed up the following night (7/5) with a second B&W photo to verify its movement.
