Potentially Hazardous Asteroid 2013 QR1: 22 Aug. 2013

On 22 Aug 2013,  The PlaneWave 17″ robotic unit, was asked to point this target, getting closer and brighter. It resulted easy to capture, despite the very bright Moon.

The Paramount ME robotic mount tracked it, at the apparent motion of about 33″/minute.

Above is an image coming from the average of 5, 180 seconds exposures.
