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

    Increase in v mag.
  2. 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...

    2018gv Our data is on their page.
  6. This is the exact position of the comet, marked with the square, at the time you tried to image it.
  7. The comet is not in your image, although your pointing is fine.
  8. Asteroids and their relative velocities

    Good work Tim. The velocities of MBAs tend to be similar. Here is a NEA: 2017 OM1.mp4
  9. NEO's need to be tracked. MBAs don't. Physical studies are useful.

  11. Hi there, The observed 'rotation' is due to tracking errors. All the stars in the fov appear to rotate. Besides, the rotational period is over three hours, with a mean amplitude of +0.165. The rotation could be observed, and measured, though.
  12. Nice animation. You certainly are not observing the rotation though.
