  1. Sorry, unless the IAU do it for you then I believe all the other sites are scams.
  2. On March 31, 2018 issue of the Minor Planet Circular, the asteroid previously known as 2001 HQ16 was named. (72834) Guywells is a Main belt asteroid with a diameter of 3-6 km. It last came to opposition in February 2018 when it reached 18th magnitude. Now it is moving through the constellation Cancer, observable at mag +19.5. (72834) Guywells was discovered by L Ball, in 2001.
  3. Time of observation?
  4. All Sky Plate Solver slewing problem

  5. Heads up: Supernova at mag 13.4 in NGC 2525

    Mag 14.22 +/- 0.02, as observed from the Northolt Branch Observatory last night.
  6. We measured the magnitude last night from the Northolt Branch Observatory. It was mag +17.5 CK10U030 KC2018 02 27.94756 05 38 27.01 +75 13 15.9 17.6 N Z80

  8. We have an animation from around the same date. It was a nice approach.
  9. 'Phaethon' was +2° above the horizon at the time stated above, So I assume you imaged it in December. Observations? Aside from the animation being severely clipped, it is great. Good work.

    Increase in v mag.
  11. Heads up: Supernova at mag 13.4 in NGC 2525

    We'll follow this one until it is too faint to continue observations. So about mag +20. In a similar fashion as 2017eaw.

    Thanks Paul. I've posted in the past, but our observatory only deals with minor body astrometry and transient photometry. They don't usually look aesthetically pleasing...
