3122 Florence - 6.9.2017 at 02.37 - 6.9.2017 at 03.01 Seinäjoki Observation number 67010

Visibility III / V

For the first time with such an observation. The equipment is so clumsy about this job that I wasn’t at all sure if it would even make that visible. In addition, the exact location of the asteroid was pretty much in search. But yes, it was a rubble, but it was finally found on the edge of the picture field.

Attachments: maximum stack for the entire observation period + somehow stacked gif animation.

The tripod's ability to follow closely ends at such a hard "magnification," resulting in image stretches and animation whipping.
