You'll need a good tracking mount, too. Image a portion of the sky you expect will contain an asteroid, preferably with a long exposure. Do it on consecutive nights and compare the two images. An asteroid will have moved between frames, and a fast moving asteroid will show up as a streak, while the stars remain round.
