Vesta photos taken yesterday

Vesta, the brightest asteroid has been quite bright nowadays. Yesterday was a great opportunity to identify Vesta since it was very close to a bright star Gamma-Lionis.
Many members of ABAA observed the asteroid. Here are some photos taken yesterday and a finder chart by heavens-above for comparison.
