Comet C/2015 ER61 Motion thumbnail
10-Apr-2017
Comets move fast. So fast that you cannot use stars to guide your telescope. With an on-axis guider I was able to lock the telescope on to the fuzzy comet. This animation shows how fast the comet moves over a 30 minute period.

Asteroid 2001 TM120 Passing NGC 5078 thumbnail
19-Apr-2016
While looking through the data captured of NGC 5078, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2001 TM120, magnitude 15.5.

Animation of Sombrero Processing Steps thumbnail

When it's cloudy I will go back to an image and animate the steps I took so I can watch it from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of the Sombrero Galaxy.

Asteroid 2000 JU23 Passing the Antennae Galaxies NGC 4038 / NGC 4039 thumbnail

Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my reprocessed image of the Lagoon Nebula.

Asteroid 2015 TG237 Passing by Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 thumbnail
23-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured of NGC 1365, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as asteroid 2015 TG237, discovered just last month.

Asteroid 2002 UY1 Passing by NGC 1055 thumbnail
14-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured last night of NGC 1055, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. It seems to be moving much more slowly than a satellite, so I can only conclude it must be an asteroid. Thanks to Le_Baron on Reddit, the asteroid was identified as 2002 UY1.

Hispania Passing NGC 5101. The Brightest Asteroid I've Ever Seen thumbnail
19-May-2016
Hispania (1915 WT) is the brightest asteroid I've ever seen. It's so bright, I had to remove it from each frame for plate solving to work. Also moving through the frame is another named asteroid: Geowilliams (1984 UL2)
