« on: Oct 26, 2013, 11:55:40 »
Image date, time and location:       20131024 00:33 - 02:19, Beckenham, UK
Telescope aperture and focal ratio:  Meade LX90 @f10
Camera and filters used:             Canon EOS 1000D, Astronomik CLS-CCD

The asteroid is mag 12.1. The three stars in the triangle are mags 14.39 (left), 13.84 (top) and 14.13 (bottom). The star it's heading towards (very dim) is 16.37. I forgot to turn off dithering in APT (doh). There are 21x300s exposures.

Thanks to Rick for tweaking the Gallery to so I could upload this animation.
