apparent magnitude of the sun from Pluto

Can anybody tell me the apparent magnitude of the sun from Pluto when New Horizons arrives there? Can you tell me it's greatest and least magnitudes during it's highly eccentric orbit?

Have a look at:

This gives an answer for the average value but you should be able to work out the max & min values.
