This frame was from a test sequence to capture Triton, which will occult a 12.5 mag star on Oct 05, 2345 UT.  The test was successful but I will be trying other options as well.  The two stars are incidental and form a nice line with the planet at the time the exposure was taken.   The brighter one is mag 10.6.   Triton is mag 13.5.   Neptune is mag 7.8 ( blotted saturated image)
