Asteroid JO25 2014

8 posts in this topic

Got a pile of data on this from last night on a single Sky 90 and on the 2 x 200mm lenses.  All 5-minute subs - but as today is my Birthday I won't have time to process all the data today :)  So here, just to prove I really did image the asteroid and I'm not just making it up, is a single 5-minute sub (that's why it is so noisy) taken on the Sky 90.  There was also continuous thin high cloud passing through which didn't help the noise much.  But there was no Moon :):):)

And here's a very quick and very nasty bolt together of all 9 x 5-minute subs with a 1-minute gap between each.

I haven't even had a chance to look at the 200mm lens data yet :)

Happy 50th birthday mate. 

She is sure is moving fast. Great catch. I'm seeing if I can catch it down here.

Cheers Ray - if only it was 50 :)

Good luck on catching up.  Somebody up there knew it was my Birthday and kept a clear patch over the New Forest Observatory when the rest of the UK was under cloud cover.

As my brother used to say to me "Devil looks after his own" :)

Great capture Greg, as Eddie said on FB very "sciencey"

Great catch Greg.  Seems you're getting more clear skies there, than I am over here across the pond.  Enjoy "your day!"

Tim.
