(7482) 1994 PC1 - 18.1.2022 at 22.31 - 18.1.2022 at 22.37 Ikaalinen Observation number 104023

Visibility III / V

Jarno Paananen, Tampereen Ursa

Between the clouds, an asteroid (7482), which had quickly passed by ex tempore, was quickly overtaken in 1994 by more than 1.9 million km. I didn’t have time to tune the orbital elements to the pedestal, so I contented myself with photographing the asteroid as a streak with regular tracking. I also tried using the PHD2's comet tracking to track it, but that didn't quite follow. The hole in the clouds didn’t last long, but the second image is the sum of a five-minute shot. There was so much momentum that there was a clear gap between downloading the image from the camera.
