About this image

Varda had moved somewhat since https://britastro.org/observations/observation.php?id=20210704_121415_8700962cea980ba1 was uploaded. The sky had improved slightly as well so this view of the TNO is noticeably better than its predecessor despite having only half the exposure time.

It is still not as good as I would have liked, though it was measurable by Astrometrica to be within 0.3 arcsec of the MPC ephemeris position.
