Vesta is coming into opposition and currently shines at magnitude 6.3.
My original thought was to capture it with a DSLR, C11, and a .63 focal reducer. I thought I would try for one picture before midnight, then a second picture before dawn, then a third the next night before midnight. the goal is to catch it moving and prove I have it. When I was playing with Stellarium however, I began to think I'm using too much focal length. If I am just trying to document that I found it perhaps I should try my DSLR on a simple tripod with a 90mm or 400mm lens. I am sure that a number of you have captured asteroids before. What would be your favorite setup?
