The reason I titled the subject as ??, I wasn't sure what to call it.

I have been playing around with taking images of the Planet Neptune on a tripod and it was very hard to identify the Planet with just the background star field from my star program.  So I took images on consecutive days and compared them to see if I could detect any  movement in the stars other than the normal star rotation.  At last I was able to make a two frame animation for the two days of images.



So now I'm pretty sure that what I thought was Neptune, is really the Planet Neptune.  It looks like it traveled approximately 3.5 arc minutes.
