When Comet Al tells you it's in Pisces, its in Pisces
The bright object is almost certainly 324 Bamberga (Mag 11.0) and the dim object is almost certainly 19 Fortuna (Mag 11.7). So, no L4 or L5 asteroids.
As well, I'm now alpha tested of some cool sky mapping software, I'll tell you about this later.
Anyway, it looks like STEREO A rotated during this maneuver so that ecliptic north is now at the bottom of the images.
Mars seems to be centered in the HI2 images, so that can be used as a reference location. However, since everything has been inverted, it has made navigation rather interesting.
