Visibility II / V

Veikko Mäkelä, Ursa (Helsinki)

While the CCD camera was grinding a series of images of the asteroid, I decided to go and see if it grabbed even without tracking with common sense, because the subject was so bright though.

Well, that seemed to work out, even though it shows up as a modest point. I tried to align the field of view so that the Dolphin came to the top of the field. The silicon asteroid remained just below the image area.
