Asteroid (276) Adelheid presentation

Here's something that has suddenly piqued my interest and grabbed me firmly by the throat! Imaging asteroids! After a 'lucky' accident the other week where I found Olympia hiding in my image, I decided that while the moon was bright this would give me something to do. Then I sadly sit there, and put together a timelapse and record my 'sighting'

To think that I can capture these things (albeit a dot on the sensor) when they are at 163 million km's from us, between Jupiter and Mars I find mind blowing.

I won't be offended if you think I'm totally mad and think it's utter rubbish :) There's also some information on my website http://www.swagastro.com/asteroids-and-me.html
