It's worth reading this post on Dr Schenk's 3D House of Satellites. In particular, note the following:
Regardless, Ceres has the potential to be quite an interesting target!Donít expect lots of images during approach to Ceres, however. To reach Ceres, the spacecraft must continue ion thrusting all the way in, and we can only point the cameras when the engines are turned off for brief intervals to peak at our target. That's why we won't be seeing pictures every day! We can't actually take pictures every day and still get to our target. We should be getting a set of images once every 1-2 weeks during approach, though, and the science team and those watching with us will be most eager to see what those images tell us as we near our target.
