This is from last night. This asteroid is from main belt and was first discovered in China by an American Astronomer in 19th century.
These images were taken from 12:18 - 12:58 yesterday night. There are total of 40 frames, here running at 10 frames per second. Each frame is of 30 seconds exposure in Astrodon V filter.
My back on the hand calculation says, it is moving at about 400 km/sec..Thats fast! Is that right?
Equipment: Celestron C14 Telescope
Mount: Losmandy Titan
Camera: SBIG ST9XE CCD Camera, internally guided

Here is a stacked image of all these ~ 40 frames. The streak is the path it took while imaging.
