Asteroid video
Hi all - During a session earlier this year, I picked up an asteroid that was only discovered a few years ago (video of what I picked up is below). I was using the TOA-130F telescope. In the past, I picked up one only *2 weeks* after it was first discovered. Close! In any case, I certainly enjoy the science side. :)
