Asteroid was already about 5.5 million km from Earth but still going fast.

15 second exposure was about longest I could use to avoid longer streaking.

This is 50 x 15 s exposure taken with C8 @ 1100mm and Ares M Pro (L filter bin2).

Hello Tapio. 

Splendid image.

Just wondering. 

 

Clear skies from Aubrey.
