3122 Florence - 5.9.2017 at 23.30 - 6.9.2017 at 02.30 Varpaisjärvi Observation number 66834

Visibility III / V


9/5/2017 was clear for a long time. After adjusting the telescope, there was still time to test the imaging. Asteroid 3122 Florence had suitably just passed the earth a few days earlier and was still visible. So I took a series of this visitor. At the time of shooting, the distance is just over 8 million kilometers and the speed is a respectable 13.5 km / s.

93pcs 30s. long exposures.
