    Edward,That’s a nice time-sequence which David captured.My reckoning gives the centre of the image at R.A. 03:34:18.9, Dec. +13:41:40The date and time must be close to 2012 December 16 20:00-20:12 UTCheers,Richard

    Edward,I think Richard has already given you the answer! I can only add that it was a sequence of 30x20s exposures with a C8 @ f/2 in hyperstar mode and SXV H9C CCD. Hope to get 2012 DA14 with the same set up on Friday if the skies clear.David
