Asteroid 102224 (Raffaellolena)

 BAA member, Raffaello has recently had the asteroid 102224 (Raffaellolena) named for him and in a recent posting asked for an image. Tonight I was able to image the asteroid details of which appear on my observers page.  I have included a cropped image here.  Taken with a 16" F6 Newtonian and stacked  as   17 x 60 sec exposures without filter. Binned 1x1 pix scale 0.57".  Magnitude 17.85 (R)
