Minor Planet 2 Pallas in Close Encounter with Eta Bootes

About this image

Close Encounter of Pallas and Eta Bootes at 5:47 local time this morning. I took the image of Minor Planet 2 Pallas as it was close to the star Muphrid (Eta Bootes) this morning using my 8 -inch RC telescope and ZWO 1600 Pro camera in Spain. The exposures were unguided. 5 X 20 seconds subs of Luminance, Red, Green and Blue. I used Nebulosity to align and stack the subs and Photoshop for processing. Muphrid is magnitude 2.68 and Pallas magnitude 7.9.
