Notes:
I managed to get pictures of Vesta and Ceres 
on four nights. I have marked the star HD117832
with a red arrow to provide a reference point. 
The width of the field is about 1degree-40minutes. 
The movement is very obvious from one night to the 
next and also how much faster Vesta moves 
compared to Ceres. When the picture was taken 
after midnight I used the date from the day 
before to be consistent.
 
The pictures were taken with a Canon SX30 
at 35x optical zoom, 15secs at f/5.8 and 
ISO 1600  on the  Ioptron Cube Pro mount. 
Full Moon was on the 12th. so the sky was 
quite bright.

A very interesting little project. Learned 
a lot.
