Asteroid 17 Thetis


Recommended Posts

Asteroid 17 Thetis is one of the larger minor planets that orbits the sun between Mars and Jupiter. It takes 1418 days, or almost 4 years to complete one orbit.

This video is a time lapse of 180 60 seconds images (3 hours observing time).

I collected the data for this image with a 91% moon all too close by. In order to get a dark background I used a red filter on my ASI294MM

Telescope: SkyWatcher 190MN on a SkyWatcher AZ-EQ6 mount
